    Brian McTaggart ‏ tweet - Jason Bourgeois tells teammates goodbye

    Steve Campbell tweet - Jason Bourgeois and Humberto Quintero shaking hands and saying goodbyes to teammates. Both say they don’t know where they’ve been traded.

    Arguably both Quintero and Bourgeois were not on track to make the 25 man cut.

    Hearing Jason Bourgeois and Humberto and Humberto Quintero are on the verge of being traded to Kansas City. Team has no comment.

    There was a rumor the Astros were interested in John Lannan from Washinton and that Bourgeois had the Nationals interest. Thought I doubt he and Q were enough for Lannan...even if the Astros were willing to take on all $5m of his salary.

    There was also a rumor that KC had interest in Q.

    12.4 SO/9 (2 year minor league average) is eye popping,
    as is his 5.06 ERA.

    Time for Luhnow to work his player development magic.

    2 guys we didn't have room for 2 prospects is a great small deal. We already have our two catchers and I have to think this means Shuck will make the team.

    Hopefully it works out for Q and Bourgeois as well.

    Chapman was ranked the #25th prospect for the Royals.

    Per McTaggart's tweet, PTBN should be higher.

    Baseball America ranked him #18. Here's their report on him.

    Sounds like they've already agreed on the player. May be a good idea to peruse the Royals last draft for options. PTBNL is often a recently drafted player who can't be traded until 1 year after signing his pro contract.

    Sorry, I just noticed it being discussed in the Spring Training thread. I guess this small trade might not warrant its own thread, so delete or lock if necessary.

    I'm getting impression that Chapman is projected to be 7th/8th inn reliever and that the ptbnl is a good one, not just throw-in. It will be a while before ptbnl is actually named, for reasons we'll delve into later. Stay tuned.
