Cubs Acquire John Grabow, Tom Gorzelanny?

Cubs Acquire John Grabow, Tom Gorzelanny?

By Tim Dierkes [July 30 at 3:22pm CST]
3:22pm: Via Twitter, Kovacevic says Grabow and Gorzelanny to the Cubs is almost or "just about" done, while Chris De Luca of the Chicago Sun-Times says they closed the deal for Grabow. ESPNChicago's Jon Greenberg says the Cubs are "in the process of finalizing" the deal for Grabow. Heyman terms the deal for both hurlers as "very close."

Hart, Ascanio, and a minor leaguer

decent trade

It's funny though, the Astros released Ortiz right after the game, so both todays SP were off their teams within an hour of the game ending.

The MLB Network is just amazed at how the Pirates continue to trade within the division. I think the Pirates are more like a universal MLB farm team... get them young, get them good...trade them off for very little!

Cubs Acquire John Grabow, Tom Gorzelanny
By Tim Dierkes [July 30 at 4:50pm CST]

4:50pm: The Pirates' return of Hart, Ascanio, and Harrison is confirmed by a press release from the Cubs. Gorzelanny will head to Triple A Iowa. The Pirates keep adding arms; I guess this means they like Hart more than Gorzelanny.

4:47pm: ESPN Chicago says the Cubs sent pitchers Kevin Hart and Jose Ascanio to Pittsburgh for Grabow and Gorzelanny. Ed Price, via Twitter, says the Cubs are also sending third baseman Josh Harrison.

hmmm... now what happens when Hart's spot comes up in the rotation? Is Marshall heading to the rotation? Or will they give Gorzelanny a shot?

I actually went to the Indy Indians (Pittsburgh AAA) game on Monday night. Gorz started for them and threw 6 2/3 innings of well pitched ball. His numbers are pretty good in AAA, but you have to take them for what they are...AAA numbers.
