Multiple sources this morning are reporting that the Red Sox have traded outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers for right-handed starting pitcher Rick Porcello.
Porcello, still only 25 years old (he turns 26 at the end of December), was a first-round draft pick of the Tigers in 2007 out of Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey. He won a career-high 15 games for Detroit in 2014, and has never won fewer than 10 games in each of his six major league seasons.
Cespedes was acquired by the Red Sox back in July in the trade that sent Lester to the Oakland Athletics.
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
