Marlins acquire Ricardo Andres from White Sox

As part of the Ozzie deal the Marlins acquire Ricardo Andres from the White Sox.

It is a press release so check it out after the break.

The Marlins today announced that they have acquired minor leaguer RHP Ricardo Andres from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for RHP Jhan Mariñez and INF Ozzie Martinez. The transaction was agreed upon by both clubs, and was contingent upon the Marlins reaching an agreement with Ozzie Guillen, who was named Marlins manager for 2012-2015. The announcement was made by Marlins President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest.

Andres, 20, spent 2011 with Bristol in the Appalachian (R) League after signing with the White Sox as a free agent in April, 2011. He was 1-0, 6.32 in 12 relief appearances in his first professional season. Andres is a native of Maracay, Venezuela.

Mariñez was originally signed by the Marlins out of Santo Domingo, DR in 2006, and Martinez was drafted by the Marlins in the 11th round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft out of Carolina, PR.

First off, I didn't know the Marlins were getting a player in return. And given the fact he was sort of lit up the Rookie League, he isn't much of a return.

However, he is still too young to make any solid assessment so it is possible he could have a future, but I wouldn't count on it. But seeing how the Marlins got young Mr. Andres in a trade, he will get every opportunity to prove himself. That is kinda the way it works with the Marlins. Not that it should be that way, but judging from the past, it is that way.

Here are his stats:

He needs some work, and a lot of it.
