Rockies Trade For All-Star Reliever To Shore Up Bullpen

Rockies Trade For All-Star Reliever To Shore Up Bullpen

"He's a pretty good reliever and he's got nasty stuff", LeMahieu said.

The Rockies entered play Wednesday night 4 1/2 games ahead of the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers for the second wild card spots.

"It's exciting", Neshek said. "You're jumping into a playoff race". (The Rockies) are a great team, great offense. "This is one of the favorite places I've been". He left open the possibility he could resign with the Phillies in the off-season.

"I'd love to come back maybe down the road", he said.

The Neshek deal is the first of what could be two or three trades the Phillies make before Monday's nonwaiver trade deadline. He was traded by Houston to the Phillies back in November and is set to make $6.5 million this year before becoming a free agent at season's end. Having McGee and his 3.27 ERA, and Neshek close out the seventh and eighth inning of games with help take a load off of Holland.

In 43 games Neshek posted a 1.12 ERA with 45 strikeouts for the Phillies. He has an impressive 65 strikeouts and.182 opponents' batting average in 42 innings. He was Philadelphia's lone representative at the All-Star Game in Miami earlier in the month.

Jose Gomez, the 20-year-old shortstop, hit.324 with an.811 OPS at low-A Asheville.

"There was a lot of interest in Neshek", Klentak said. "But [the Neshek trade] is definitely the one we thought was most likely".

Klentak said nearly every team in contention at least called the Phillies about Neshek, but a "handful" were serious bidders. "People have been talking about it since April, so it's done". It's kind of nerve wracking. You read Twitter, and it seems like every team imaginable might.

Requena, 20, was signed as an global free agent by the Rockies in September 2013. All three players were selected as All-Stars in the South Atlantic League. (He was recently promoted to high-A.) He has put up a 1.20 ERA over 30 innings, with seven saves, 47 strikeouts and just five walks. "I think it's a very balanced trade". But injuries to some Philadelphia veterans could limit chances for future deals. One of the possibilities - Daniel Nava - was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a left hamstring strain that will effectively kill any potential market for him before July 31.

"Because of the nature of the Rule 5 Draft and Rule 5 protection, we were willing to explore the acquisition of young players", Klentak said. We have to see. "I don't want to handicap it".

On the other hand, the Phillies land three promising players in return for a middle reliever. Health will be a factor.

"It's bittersweet because I love the guys in here", Neshek said. They turned the 36-year-old reliever into a shortstop, a righthanded starter and a righthanded reliever. "My family loved it and I felt comfortable".
