Found October 01, 2011 on Rockies Locker:
The Rockies have sent 22-year old righty swinging CF Eliezer Mesa to the A’s to complete the deal for Mark Ellis. Mesa played in 53 games in A-ball last year for the Rockies and he was 42 for 164 (.256 avg, .631 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 0 homers, 13 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Mark Ellis played in 70 games for the Rockies after coming over from the A’s and he was 72 for 263 (.274 avg, .708 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 6 homers, 25 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. He played in 132 games overall last year with the A’s & Rockies and he was 119 for 480 (.248 avg, .634 OPS) with 55 runs scored, 7 homers, 41 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. I still like this deal for the Rockies as Mesa wasn’t considered one of their better prospects.
