This is a segment from the Slumpbuster Podcast. Deji Andrew from the Baseball Connection Podcast joins us to discuss some of the biggest moves from the MLB Trade Deadline. In this segment, the guys take a look at what the aggressive push by the Athletics for Starling Marte at the deadline.
Marte has had a fantastic season for the Miami Marlins, slashing .306/.408/.444 with 26 stolen bases. In this trade the A's will be sending left handed hurler Jesus Luzardo. Luzardo was struggling to the tune of 6+ ERA until his eventual demotion to AAA. Currently the A's trail the Houston Astros in the race for the AL West crown. What does Marte do for the Athletics in the season's second half?
