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.

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.

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...
