Gio to Nats for Cole, Norris, Peacock, and Milone. Love this for Oakland.— keithlaw (@keithlaw) December 22, 2011
Impressive haul for the A's. ------ "Cole, a 19-year-old right-hander, posted a 108/24 K/BB ratio in 89 innings this past season at the Single-A level. Peacock, a 23-year-old righty, had a 2.39 ERA and 177/47 K/BB ratio in 146 2/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A in 2011. Norris, a 22-year-old catcher, has an .861 career OPS in the minors. Milone registered a 155/16 K/BB ratio in 148 1/3 innings this past season at Triple-A."
