The Royals traded Eli Marerro the Baltimore Orioles for career minor leaguer Peter Maestrales.
An infielder who has never made it past A Ball, Maestrales did pitch two and a half innings for Newark in the Independent league last year, allowing one unearned run and posting a WHIP of 1.29.
My guess is he'll be our closer by mid-August.
Oh, and one other thing, he was born of the fourth of July. No kidding.
