Pigs and Nads Swap Players

The Warpigs made their third trade of the day at the Winter Meetings today. They sent SP/RP Jaime Garcia and their own 3rd round pick to the Nads for Josh Harrison and a reserve pick.

Garcia, last year's 3rd overall pick after a great 2015, had a disappointing 2016 and has been since dealt to the Braves. He will have relief on his card, and could find his form again in Nadville. Said Garcia, "Going from the Warpigs to the Nads is fine by me, because I've always kinda preferred Nads. I can't get enough of them."

Harrison will turn 30 next summer, and his most telling stat is that his Batting Average, OnBase Percentage, and Slugging Percentage have ALL declined in each of the last three years. "It's hard to find that kind of consistency," said the Pigman at JayHay's presser. "Add to that the fact that he can no longer play multiple positions, and you've got a guy that fits in perfectly on our team. We're lucky to have him."
