Reports have surfaced that Old Forest has agreed to send 34-year-old RHP Gilly Greenthumb, 22-year-old minor league LHP Li-zhi Oyama, 23-year-old minor league RHP Hedi McAtee and 19-year-old minor league SS Jung-heum Armcrawler to the Land of Oz Munchkins in exchange for 26-year-old RHP P.J. Guido, 20-year-old minor league RHP Slobodan Elvawen and 23-year-old RHP Ugrog Sildshul. “It’s a done deal,” said one executive speaking on the condition of anonymity. “I’m surprised word got around so quickly. We just signed off on this an hour ago.” The deal apparently is awaiting physicals before an official announcement is made by either team.
Greenthumb has a career 80-95 mark with a 3.55 ERA. He has fanned 1092 batters, issued 379 walks, pitched 1707.2 innings and limited the opposition to a .260 batting average.
