2037.2 Mixed News Bears: A money move

Post by usnspecialist » Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:56 pm

In the first of what potentially could be a series of moves caused by an upcoming budget crunch, Leon Ramirez was sent to Nashville along with minor leaguers Hokusai Saito and Ánibal Gracía to Nashville in a deal that brought Alfredo Perales and Miroslav Tomanek to the Valley. GM Randy Weigand was seen having a long talk with Ramirez just before news broke, and when asked what he said responded with "that is between me and Leon, he was a vital role player for us and he will be missed". The reason for the deal was simple, money. The bears are projected to be right at the salary cap line for 2038 and with Ramirez in the last year of his deal, Weigand decided to move him while he could still get some value rather than let him walk for nothing. The return actually turned out to be respectable, as Weigand managed to wrangle both a replacement for Ramirez in Perales and a setup man (and potential long-term replacement for Miguel Macias), in Tomanek.

From the outsiders point of view, Perales appears to be nothing more than a placeholder until Sergei Hopkins is ready to assume his place in the rotation. Tomanek on the other hand, was a flop as a starter so the team focused on refining his pitches this offseason to the point that he looks ready to assume the 8th inning role and if that works out potentially the 9th inning down the road.
