Bonus Trade Tree – Matt Diaz

Apparently today is “ship off your spare outfielders” day in Pittsburgh.

Diaz will be seen as a disappointment for his five months in the ‘burgh but he was mostly his normal self after an ice cold April. The biggest problem was the team played him too often against righthanded pitchers.

Its just as well that he’s gone because I didn’t see him playing much the rest of the year. McCutchen, Tabata, Presley, Ludwick and Jones were all ahead of him on the depth chart.

Update 9/21/11: The Pirates acquired AA RHP Eliecer Cardenas from the Braves to complete the deal. The tree above has been updated.
