You can’t always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Misty Mountain and Ravenhill have made a swap with 28-year-old LF Polly Bridger being shipped to the Darkwings and in return the Hops would get 27-year-old RHP Zoello Rödinger.
Misty Mountain general manager Hobbit RJW 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 Misty Mountain organization said the two sides might not be done dealing, and another transaction could be in the works.
In the current season, Bridger has put up a .289 batting average with 41 hits, 8 home runs, 20 RBI and scored 22 runs.
On the year Rödinger has worked 152 innings with 128 strikeouts en route to a 11-5 record and 3.26 ERA.
