Sox Send #25 Prospect As PTBNL In Travis Shaw Deal

The Red Sox today sent minor-league IF Yeison Coca—ranked by Baseball America as the 25th best prospect in the organization—to the Brewers as the "player-to-be-named-later" in the trade that sent Travis Shaw to Milwaukee in exchange for Tyler Thornburg. Minor-leaguers Mauricio Dubon (IF) and Josh Pennington (P) were also sent to The Brew Crew. So, four players for one guy (Thornburg) who has yet to throw a pitch in anger for The Carmine Hose. By the way, Shaw is hitting .292, with 10 HRs and 40 RBIs so far this year as Milwaukee's first/third-baseman.
