Resop (who was a tender candidate) to Oakland for pitcher Zach Thornton, Navarro (who was recently DFA'ed) to Baltimore for pitcher Jhondaniel Medina.

Medina is a 19-year old Venezuelan pitcher who pitched in the GCL last year.

Thornton is 24 and had a really strong K:BB ratio at A+ (70:19) and 4:53 ERA (in 53 innings of work).

I was searched for info on Jhondaniel Medina and found this:

Quote:
89-91 mph with fastball. A little room to add weight. Slider is a tick below-average and has nice bite to it. Changeup is inconsistent but flashes above-average at times. Could become middle reliever, swing man, or #5 starter depending on where his velocity ends up.

Sounds about right to me, they turned a couple of spare parts into lottery tickets.
