The Colorado Rockies have acquired 25-year old righty swinging 2B Brad Emaus from the Toronto Blue Jays for 27-year old righty reliever Chris Malone. Emaus played in 14 games for the Mets earlier this year and he was 6 for 37 (.162 avg, .424 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI. He has played in 425 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 431 of 1,559 (.276 avg, .790 OPS) with 254 runs scored, 39 homers, 227 RBIs and 37 stolen bases. Emaus will start out in AAA and get a call to the Rockies if he’s needed. Chris Malone has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) in AA-ball so far this year and he was 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP. Malone isn’t much of a prospect, so I like the Rockies’ side of this deal.
