The Buckeyes sent starting pitcher Kevin Gausman to the Skyscrapers for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.
Gausman, the young LSU alum, had a good year in 2016, with a 3.61 ERA in 179.2 innings. He will take up a spot at the back of the Skyscraper rotation.
Cabrera, the switch-hitting ss-3e8, hit .280 last year with 23 homers. His value on the new Skyscraper team was diminished with the addition of Andrelton Simmons, and as the new owner stated in his release, "There's only room for one shortstop with a weird first name that starts with A."
