The Brewers finally traded reliever Jose Capellan; the Tigers snagged the 26 year-old for southpaw Chris Cody.
Many teams kicked the tires on Capellan, but I hadn’t seen the Tigers mentioned previously. His work at Triple A was OK. His 7.1 K/9 was nothing special, and his control wasn’t great. Same story since his recall to the bigs. I’m not sure how much he’s going to help the Tigers, but they will take anything they can get right now.
Cody, 23, had just earned a promotion from the Low A Michigan Whitecaps to the High A Lakeland Tigers after posting a 6.1 K/BB. He was old for his level, and still isn’t anyone to get excited about. Doug Melvin originally expected "something big" in return for Capellan.
