Sweeney hitting .284-4-11 in Class ANews: From The Sports Xchange notes: The Angels sent three players to the Rays in the trade for Scott Kazmir: Sean Rodriguez is batting .200 in a utility role with the Rays this season; outfielder Matt Sweeney is batting .284 with four home runs and 11 RBI for Class A Charlotte; and left-hander Alex J. Torres is 3-2 with a 3.41 ERA in six starts for Double-A Montgomery. Analysis: Sweeney is a long-term keeper prospect worth stashing, but we don't expect him to make an impact on the Rays or any Fantasy leagues this season.
Rays get Sweeney in Kazmir dealNews: The Tampa Bay Rays traded LHP Scott Kazmir to Los Angeles Angels for LHP Alex J. Torres and 3B Matt Sweeney on Friday. Analysis: Sweeney is nothing more than a long-term keeper prospect as this point in his career. He has plus power, but the 21-year-old will need to spend the 2010 season in the minors.
