Jonathan Sanchez, Ryan Verdugo Traded To Royals

In a move that screams “SABEAN, WHAT ARE YOU ACTUALLY DOING RIGHT NOW,” the San Francisco Giants have traded pitchers Jonathan Sanchez and Ryan Verdugo for Royals outfielder Melky Cabrera.

In 2011, Sanchez had been plagued by injuries in the revolving-door saga that went Sanchez-DL, Barry Zito-DL, Sanchez-DL. Verdugo had spent the season in Double-A Richmond, posting a 4.35/4.10 ERA/FIP line.

Cabrera, expected to be the Giants’ leadoff man, finished the 2011 season with a .305/.339/.470 BA/OBP/SLG line and a.164 ISO.
