Acquired INF-S Zach Walters from Washington Nationals in exchange for SS-S Asdrubal Cabrera [7/31]

While 52 plate appearances doesn't even begin to sniff the edges of sample size relevance, Walters does tempt scouts and fans alike into believing he could continue posting rate stats similar to his "career" line so far of .234/.308/.489. As Professor Parks called it before the season, "Walters brings some legit thunder in the stick."

Not convinced that Asdrubel is that much of an improvement on Espinosa. When Desmond got hurt and Espinosa had to move to short, his offense really picked up.

Maybe a team looking to upgrade shortstop might want to give Espinosa a try as he likely will cost nil.
