Phillies Acquire Stefan Jarrin

The Phillies announced that they have acquired infielder Stefan Jarrin from the Dodgers. The move completes the July 31st trade that sent Shane Victorino to Los Angeles for Ethan Martin, Josh Lindblom and player to be named or cash.

Jarrin, 22, spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons with the Dodgers' Rookie ball affiliate. The 2011 40th round selection has a .211/.309/.336 batting line in 175 plate appearances over the course of two seasons with the Arizona League Dodgers. He played one game at shortstop but has spent most of his professional career at second base. Jaime Jarrin, the Hall of Fame Spanish language broadcaster of the Dodgers, is Stefan Jarrin's grandfather.

Some game changer Ruben acquired there.

Pretty silly comment considering the fact that they got a promising pitching prospect in Martin and a useful and cheap bullpen arm in Lindbloom.

Yeah silly indeed. I hear the other two PTBNL’s are Tom Scully and George Monday.

Even if it was 5 dollars and a coupon to dominos? I think not. Amaro got a player that… Well isn’t going to do much but the money wasn’t going to be enough to do much either so win?
