Done Deal: for Sweet
Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Washington and Cleveland have made a swap with nothing being shipped to the Spiders and in return the Nationals would get 25-year-old 2B Steve Sweet.

Washington general manager Patrick Garde said the two sides were close to a blockbuster trade before agreeing upon a smaller scale transaction.

"This is just a bit of housekeeping compared to what we wanted to do," he said. "I won't name names, but the potential deal we were close to making would have certainly grabbed some headlines."

A source inside the Washington organization said the two sides might not be done dealing, and another transaction could be in the works.


Sweet has played in 156 games and is hitting .266 lifetime with 57 RBIs, 163 hits, 36 doubles, 1 triple and 9 home runs. He has scored 67 times and stolen 10 bases.
Chicago-Seattle Trade: Garcia for Moore
Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
The Baseball News Network is reporting that the White Sox and Mariners have consummated a trade. Seattle will receive 29-year-old LF Avisail Garcia and 23-year-old minor league CF Chris Bryan in a swap for 33-year-old RHP Danny Farquhar, 26-year-old RF Johnny Moore and 24-year-old minor league SS Alejandro Paulino. A league analyst called the trade a "fairly even transaction."


In his 1026-game career Garcia is hitting .288 with 1132 hits, 169 home runs, 557 runs scored and 622 RBIs.

His lifetime stats show that Moore has hit .263 and connected for 59 home runs.
