Grizzlies Make Roster Move

Hello all!  The Grizzlies have made their first roster move after the completion of the 2012 season, trading right-handed pitcher Jordan Cudney to the Rockford RiverHawks in exchange for infielder, Jet Butler.

I talked this morning with manager Phil Warren and hitting coach Mike Breyman and both guys are excited about the potential of this deal.  Mike compares Butler to former Frontier League star Joash Brodin and feels that Butler has the potential to be one of the best hitters in the league.  Cudney may have the chance to be a starting pitcher for the RiverHawks, which is ultimately the position he wants to be in.  Only time will tell if this deal will sway in favor of the Grizzlies, but at least on paper it looks like a great move for Gateway.  Butler is a versatile defender who can play any of the infield positions and also the corner outfield spots.
