Screaming Beavers aquire Eli Espinosa


Looking to boost an under-achieving offense, the Minnesota Screaming Beavers dealt veteran CF Louie Lopez to Florida for Eli Espinosa. Espinosa will immediately take over full time 2B duties and hit at the top of the order. His batting eye, tremendous speed and running ability should provide the spark the Beavers have been needing all season. He also fits in nicely with the Beavers pitching & defense first philosophy with above average range and glove.Rookie 3B Lee Clifton will split time at the hot corner with displaced IF Sam Goldman. Neither player was very happy with the news but understood management's decision to make a move.
