Even more news! Cubs Trade Torreyes to Astros for international cash
I talked about the importance of the international singing period earlier today, and now we are really seeing how important it is with these deals. Patrick Mooney is reporting that the Cubs have traded Ronald Torreyes (he was acquired in the Sean Marshall to the Reds trade) to the Astros for international bonus money, a shade under $800,000 to be exact. The Cubs are loading up on international money after spending roughly $2.6M earlier today, so something might be in the works, and the Cubs have been rumored to be in on number one prospect outfielder Eloy Jimenez, stay tuned obviously.
