Portland agreed to draft Pat Allen and Andre Georges and flip them for younger pieces.
As for the other pieces, Jouda is your prototypical light hitting utility guy. He played 7 different positions this season and while performing well with the glove, just couldn't hit. He could still be an option as a super utility guy in the near future if spots open up. Cortez had a solid season in AA but, like many propsects the Lumberjacks have at the moment, relied heavily on his defense. He can play all 3 OF positions extremely well. But can he hit to be a viable option in the BBA down the road? Silva pitched well in AA and over the short time he spent late in the year in Triple A. But considering he is maxed out, we don't see him doing much, if anything, in Portland.
Who won the trade:
Even though Portland could have used some starting pitching depth like Georges, I'm still giving Portland the early nod in this trade. Perhaps I'm overly excited over Lopez and he'll fizzle out. But with very few, if any, youngsters ready to make a mark on this team right now, he's our first bright spot. Jouda, despite his negative WAR this year, does have some ability to be a role guy for us early on as we build up draft picks. So considering we didn't lose much but gained a young bright spot and some role depth, I'm counting this one as a win for Portland.
