Crawdad Chronicles 46.01 New Orleans moves Klooster

Post by JimBob2232 » Thu Feb 18, 2021 9:44 pm

The New Orleans Crawdads announced today they have traded star C Roloef Klooster to Charlotte

Klooster, https://statspl.us/brewster/reports/new ... 30978.html who was aquired in a trade for Hector Amaral in 2038 has been solid in his time in New Orleans, although his 2045 campaign was less than steller. In his 5 seasons he hit .268 with 83 HRs and 13.3 WAR.

However, in 2025, he hit just .238, with 18 HRs and 1.6 WAR. He is a Free Agent after this season, and was asking for 6 years 90M, which averages out to $15M/year. New Orleans could not commit that kind of cash to someone coming off the 2045 season, so looked to deal him.

As part of the replacemet, the Crawdads receive C John Hale, https://statspl.us/brewster/reports/new ... 36425.html who hit .219 with 22 HRs and 1.1 WAR - making him a suitable replacement for Klooster with minimal dropoff from his 2045 level. However Hale pales in comparison to what Klooster has been able to do historically.

New Orleans also brings back a top 50 prospect and former #6 overall draft pick Todd Tatlock, https://statspl.us/brewster/reports/new ... 57193.html who could be one of the best fielding catching prospects the league has seen in generations - but he is a few years away from the big show.

New Orleans also bring in a MR prospect Frank Benitez https://statspl.us/brewster/reports/new ... 56858.html who has two outstanding pitches and a nasty fastball.
