Indians pickup two prospects for Hynes, Guilmet
On Sunday the Indians completed a trade with the Dodgers acquiring right-handed pitcher Duke von Schamann in exchange for left-handed pitcher Colt Hynes. Less then 24 hours later the Indians completed a trade with the Orioles acquiring infielder/outfielder Torsten Boss in exchange for right-handed pitcher Preston Guilmet.
Von Schamann, 22, opened the 2014 season at Double-A Chattanooga, where he made one start (W, 7.0IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K). The 6-5 right-hander split 2013 between Chattanooga and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga where he went a combined 11-7 with a 4.67 ERA in 27 games/23 starts (131.0IP, 146H, 68ER, 38BB, 100K). He owns a three-year professional mark of 18-11 with a 3.93 ERA in 43 games/37 starts (213.0IP, 211H, 93ER, 52BB, 146K). He was LA’s 15th round selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Texas Tech and will be assigned to the Double-A Akron roster.
Boss, 23, opened the 2014 season in Single-A Frederick, appearing in one game thus far (1-3, 2B, RS). He spent the 2013 season at Single-A Delmarva of the South Atlantic League, hitting .238 (92-386) with 21 doubles, 2 triples, 7 home runs and 45 RBI in 106 games (44RS, 53BB, .333OB%). The Lowell, Michigan native was Baltimore’s 8th round selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Michigan State. He has been assigned to the A Carolina roster.
Both Hynes and Guilmet were designated for assignment on March 30th.
could have got nothing since DFS. Looking a Von Schamann, who opened the 2014 season throwing two hits in seven innings, might have a chance to prove himself this year and being 22 and now only in baseball going into 2 years. Boss, 23,
it seems by looking a his stats might need practice with plate control due to hitting 238 but 21 double, 2 triples and 7 home runs sure lets you know that the potential is there. I think good moves. Thanks Jim & Tony for keeping us current. Good article
