Evil Dead trades for veteran Catcher
(China)- the Chinese Evil Dead have announced the acquisition of catcher Carlos Ruiz and left-handed pitcher Jeremy Sowers from Missouri for OF Juan Pierre and a 9th round pick. The Evil Dead have been looking for another catcher to pair with John Buck for some time now. "Carlos Ruiz will be given around 350 ABS and will be expected to play in a lot of games over here, we like his hitting ability", said Mark Ewing. "Jeremy Sowers is a prospect of sorts, but he is left-handed."
OF Juan Pierre, has many records for Chinese, including all-time games played, hits and stolen bases. His defense had slipped and he had lost his starting position to Chris Young. "Juan was a good guy for us, 4 years of leading off, but he will now help the Missouri Fightin' Farmers."
