Keith Law is reporting that the two prospects in the Sean Marshall for Travis Wood deal are Dave Sappelt and Ronald Torreyes. If it is true, I will just say that I am in shock over this. I wouldn’t trade Travis Wood or Dave Sappelt straight up for one season of Sean Marshall, who I really like. I am sorry, but relievers simply aren’t worth that kind of value. To add in Ronald Torreyes is shocking to me on top of it. Extension or not, this is a drastic overpay if it’s true and no one will ever convince me otherwise. I would have started Dave Sappelt in left field all year long. Apparently Chris Heisey and his low OBP is going to get a chance instead. I don’t dislike Heisey, but I would trade him 95 times out of 100 instead of Dave Sappelt.

The Cubs end up getting OF Dave Sappelt and INF Ronald Torreyes along with LHP Travis Wood for LHP Sean Marshall. Torreyes sounds like the most intriguing prospect of the group, but not a bad haul for a reliever in my opinion.
