TA: Rockies and Rangers swap Guerrero and Asche
« on: 29 Dec 2015 11:36:58 AM »
Rangers get: 3B/LF Alex Guerrero (3rd, $7.138M)
Rockies get: 3B/OF Cody Asche (2nd, $0.525M)

Guerrero started the 2015 absolutely on fire, with 9 HR and an OPS above .900 in April and May. But he was absolutely terrible the rest of the way, with an OPS in the low .500s the rest of the way. The Rangers are hoping that first-half Guerrero makes an appearance in 2016.

Asche was moved off of 3B and to LF to make room at 3B for Maikel Franco. He hasn't hit as much as expected yet, and the transition to LF has been less than smooth. He'll probably get a better defensive rating at 3B than in LF, and could be an option at 3B for the Rockies.
