Anderson Traded To Philly

In return, the Pirates acquired a pair of Class A players who are ranked among the Phillies’ top 30 prospects by Baseball America: right-handed pitcher Cristian Hernandez and catcher Abrahan Gutierrez.

The Pirates scratched Anderson on Tuesday afternoon from his scheduled start against the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park, signaling a trade was imminent. They recalled right-hander Cody Ponce from Triple-A Indianapolis, though Pirates manager Derek Shelton declined to name the starter for Tuesday night’s game.
Hernandez, who was ranked the Phillies’ No. 25 prospect by Baseball America and No. 29 by MLB.com, has a fastball that sits at 93-94 mph and touches 97 and a slider and changeup.

Gutierrez, 21, is a right-handed hitter who batted .285/.418/.424 with nine doubles, five home runs and 29 RBIs at Low A Clearwater. The 6-2, 214-pounder from Venezuela was ranked the Phillies’ No. 27 prospect by Baseball America.

Maybe we thought we were getting the 17 year old Cristian Hernandez from the Cubs that is ranked in the top 100. :)
Seriously there are 2 Cristian Hernandez prospects so don't get them confused. I hope nothing is wrong with Tyler Anderson. The Pirates know way more than me, but it seems like we got a better return for Clay Holmes than this proposed Tyler Anderson deal. I wouldn't have guessed that would happen.

They said Anderson is throwing in the Pirates bullpen warming up tonight so it must have been on the Phillies end.
