Quantcast

Right after Reed Johnson was pulled from tonight’s Cubs game, and did the handshake-and-hug-thing in the dugout, catcher Geovany Soto – also known to be on the block – was pulled, and did the very same thing in the dugout.

We know that Johnson is being traded, so it’s a pretty fair guess that Soto is, too. Whether it’s the same deal, or a separate one, we’ll have to see.

As with Reed, I’ll do updates here as soon as we learn more. Now *this* is how I envisioned the BNBlogathon…

UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal says there is indeed a deal, and it’s a separate one from the Reed Johnson trade. That’s fine and all, but it makes my duel posting more difficult!

UPDATE 2 (at 9:45pm CT): Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports says Soto has been dealt to the Rangers. No word on the return yet, but keep expectations low.

UPDATE 3 (at 9:50pm CT): Danny Knobler says Jacob Brigham is in the deal, or may be the entire return. He’s a 24-year-old pitcher at AA, with decent K numbers, and improving walk numbers. Not overwhelming on a first look.

UPDATE 4 (at 10:46pm CT): Like the Maholm/Johnson deal, I’m leaving this one for now while I turn to other stuff. I’ll have more on it later today/tomorrow.
