Rockies Rotation Rebuild Continues – Complete Deal With Reds

Rocky Mountain Surprise

Arenado Dealt to Reds For SP Suarez

In a surprise move, the Colorado Rockies have agreed to trade

Nolan Arenado along with Nobuhisa Koyama and Brad Smith to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Albert Suarez.

While the Rockies acknowledge that it will extremely difficult to replace Nolan on the field and in the clubhouse, they ultimately believe that adding Suarez to the rotation behind the newly acquired Mark Minor and returning trio of Craig Cooper, Orlando Garcia, and Daniel Hudson was too good to pass up.

In acquiring Arenado, the Reds are finally able to end their long and difficult search for a cornerstone at third base.
