Cubs Get Wood, Torreyes and Sappelt from Reds

The Cubs end up getting OF Dave Sappelt and INF Ronald Torreyes along with LHP Travis Wood for LHP Sean Marshall.

Follow the comments starting from here for some great quotes that Cubster found on the new guys.

Report: Reds trade Dave Sappelt and Ronald Torreyes in Sean Marshall trade

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.

State of the Farm – Second Base

Ronald Torreyes may have spent the first half of the season in extended spring training, but what he was able to do over the second half of the season puts him at the top of my list at second base. The 18 year old burst onto the scene last year after demolishing the Venezuelan Summer League before coming to the US and hitting .349/.379/.494 for the AZL Reds as a 17 year old. Despite...
