Pedro Ciriaco Dealt To Padres For PTBNL/Cash

Well, as predicted, it did happen. Pedro Ciriaco was traded today to the San Diego Padres for a player to be named later or cash considerations. With the activation of Will Middlebrooks and the stellar performance of Jose Iglesias, Ciriaco's mediocre 2013 play could no longer justify a roster spot. San Diego's rookie phenom Jedd Gyorko has been sidelined by injury, so Ciriaco could immediately see some playing time at second base. We wish the former "Yankee-Killer" all the best at PETCO.
