Both sides appear content with the trade finalized today that will send 26-year-old RHP Luumsh Gaulf to the Lothlorien Lumberjacks, while the Rivendell Royals will receive 23-year-old minor league LHP Vyacheslav Sestoso and 21-year-old minor league SS Grobzagh Throatscarer.

“This is a move that filled a few gaps in our roster,” said Bawb Nailslobberer, Royals general manager.

For his part, the Lumberjacks GM said the trade was made “in the best interest of our organization’s future.” BNN analysts reported that on paper the trade seemed to be a plus for both ball clubs. The players involved are expected to join their new teams for the next scheduled game.

Gaulf’s record this year is 6-and-1 with 3 saves and a 2.08 ERA. He has given up 19 hits in 30.1 innings with 32 strikeouts.
