Raptors Looking for OF Depth

With the injury to Angel Banuelos, Antelope Valley is looking to add some OF depth.  The Raptors are actively shopping Utility Infielders Mario Silva or Miguel Rodriguez.  Both are solid hitters (career .280s), good defenders capable of playing 2B/SS/3B young and have minimal contracts.  Due to their ability to step in and start, we will also consider dealing older star 3B Andres Velasco.  He has a rather large salary, but next year is a team option (250K buyout) so he can be jettisoned after this year if desired. 

Prefer a comparable rated 4th OFer, capable of playing CF.  Speed and defensive ability preferred.  Not looking to add an aging, high salary veteran, unless it's for Velasco.

Rain Delay

An owner asked for some additional time to get ready for Opening Day, so I'm delaying the sim until Saturday night.

The second sim, however, will still be the following Wednesday night.

Atlanta has a new GM

Coming back to the league to take over Atlanta is an old face to the league. Thomas Carrano who was GM of Norfolk and had to leave do to health reason is back.... " I wanted a second chance to prove I'm better then what I left in Norfolk". So with that I look forward to helping Atlanta make playoffs and hopefully a championship.
