Traded (P)Whalen and (P)Povse to the Mariners for Alex Jackson (#6 overall pick in 2014).

Alex Jackson was expected to be a star for the M's, but struggled in the minors after transitioning for Catcher to the outfield (Was also injured in the minors). Povse (3rd rd in 2014) is a big fella with a hard fastball and has an imposing presence on the mound. I hate to lose him as I believe he has some pretty good potential. However, he was stuck behind some other pretty good pitchers so apparently he was deemed expendable. Whalen (12th rd in 2012) was acquired by the Braves in 2015 in the trade that sent K.Johnson and J. Uribe to the Mets. He saw a little bit of action this past season at the ML level and struggled a bit with his command. He has potential, but again he is stuck behind some other pitchers. Both players were ranked in the top 25 of the prospect list for the Braves in various prospect lists.

If the Braves can get Jackson's swing fixed then it could very well be a good trade for the Braves considering the need for bats in the organization. I think Povse will eventually turn into a solid 3 at the ML level and if he can develop his curve a bit more there is potential to move higher.

Braves also just got Tyler Pike as the player to named later in this deal (Whalen/povse for Jackson/Pike). Pike is a former 3rd rd pick

So when we were hearing about all the "blockbuster" trades this offseason, they were referring to the current Blockbuster business and not the usual meaning?

This



instead of this:

Both are from 2010 draft class and both were drafted pretty high. Jenkins had a tendency to give up the long ball in his few ML appearances, but was still a highly rated Braves Prospect. Do not know much about Jackson other than he was roughed up in his few ML appearances. Both are still young so we will have to wait and see which team came out better, but Jenkins is generally believed to have the most upside of the two.
Jenkins had some rough starts last year but I think he wasn't ready. With all of the injuries and not having a consistent rotation, he was thrown in the fire. I think with some work, Jenkins could have been a #5 guy or a solid middle reliever.

Braves trade Mallex Smith and Shane Simmons for 2 left handed pitchers from the Mariners organization. Luiz Gohara was their #5 prospect, but apparently he was #2 with Keith Law. The other prospect, Thomas Burrows, was Bama's closer the last 3 years and was drafted in the 3rd round. It also clear some up 2 40 man roster spots, so we may not be done here boys and girls.

Gohara put up some good numbers in low A/high A last season. Consistent high 90s (with the occasional triple digit) from the leftside. Pretty good move by the Braves as Smith had become a bit of an injury risk (just got hurt again a few days ago) and really did not have a spot to play. Mariners appears to be in the process of flipping Smith to Tamba Bay for some more prospects.
