But why would AZ trade a prospect who has performed well in limited action in the bigs? He has always been more about the projection than what his early stats will say, a young pitcher expected to grow into a number 2 roll.
You know a pitcher who had that same kind of background, one you would easily just write off...... Freaking Johan Santana.
Delgado is not a bust, and AZ is not trading him to us for a busted prospect, because, he is not a busted prospect. This not a Simon Castro or Nestor Molina. This is a 23 year old who has pitched reasonably well in the bigs.
You do not trade Peavy for Delgado straight up, but if you could get a package like Delgado Matt Davidson and Chris Owings or something with Delgado and Stryker Trahan, yah, you have a winner and its a great deal.
