ATL: Traded Kevin Gryboski to Tex for Matt Lorenzo

Gryboski is a solid reliever, who could help a lot of teams. I'm actually a little surprised to see the Braves ship him out so quickly, for a pitcher with as little promise as Lorenzo.

The other side of the transaction has the Braves promoting Macay McBride, a promising lefty from their system. Who the Braves must be high on to give Gryboski away for what I view as pennies on the dollar.

The Rangers sent CJ Wilson to AA. Wilson isn't much of a pitcher, his performance record shows it, and his lack of success in Arlington shows it.

Great move for the Rangers.
