    Santana Traded to the Royals

    The Royals have acquired Ervin Santana from the Angels, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter). It's not yet clear what the Angels are obtaining in return for Santana.
    I wonder what we get



    UPDATE:
    Confirmed, via source, #Angels sending $1M to #Royals. So, they pay what buyout would've cost and get a LH back. Better than nothing.

    Brandon Sisk, whom #Angels acquired in Ervin Santana trade, is a LH reliever, 1.351 WHIP this year at AAA. He is 27 years old.

    WTF we traded Santana for a reliever?!?!

    The #Angels actually exercised Santana's $13-million option before trade and are sending cash to #Royals as part of deal for Brandon Sisk.

    Basically the Angels traded Santana for nothing.

    So, as expected, Angels will pay part of Santana's 2013 salary, per @MikeDiGiovanna.

    And even worse we have to pay part of his contract too. SMH. Santana had a $1 million buy out. Why not use that?

    I'm gonna wait until we hear the official specifications of the deal. Picking up the option and trading him with cash for nothing makes very little sense as opposed to letting him walk for 1M.

    I don't see how that could be the case.

    Sisk has some pretty nice numbers, I don't really care about the age of relievers as much as starters/position players.

    It says we are sending money, I'm sure it's less than the 1M buyout

    We are likely paying 1M or less, plus getting a lefthanded relief option for our pen.

    4:59pm: The Angels are sending $1MM to the Royals, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports (on Twitter).
    So we would have paid 1M anyway as a buyout, so we got a nothing reliever for free.

    Bye Ervin, you weren't the best, but you were my fave.
