Less than a month after acquiring


Less than a month after acquiring shortstop Yunel Escobar in a monster
12player deal with Toronto, the Miami Marlins have shipped him to the Tampa Bay
Rays Pat Tillman Jersey White for a minor league infielder.

Miami acquired Escobar as part of a package that saw it send shortstop Jose
Reyes, lefthanded pitcher Mark Buehrle and righthander Josh Johnson among others
north of the border.

Escobar was a disappointment for the Blue Jays this past season, batting just
.253 with nine home runs, 51 RBI and 58 runs scored in 145 games. He was also
suspended late in the season for writing a homophobic slur on his eye black.

He reportedly had asked to be traded and was also being shopped to

"Whatever http://www.nikecardinalsauthenticjerseys.com/Authentic-Pat-Tillman-Jersey
happens, I want to thank the city of Miami for all the signs of affection in
these days," Escobar told the El Nuevo Herald earlier on Tuesday. "Honestly, I
had a lot of excitement to play in Little Havana, but it looks like it wont be
that way. It's not something I can control."

Escobar, who will likely be able to play his natural shortstop position
rather than third base where the Marlins had intended to put him will make $5
million this coming season. The Rays Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey will also hold $5 million options
on him for 2014 and '15.

With the $5 million the Marlins lose on Escobar's deal, they now have $21
million worth of commitments and just one arbitrationeligible Pat Tillman Jersey player.

In return from Tampa, Miami Pat Tillman Youth Jersey gets 23yearold Derek Dietrich, who
was recently listed as the ninthbest prospect in the Rays' system. He hit .279
with 14 home runs and 28 doubles between HighA Charlotte and DoubleA Montgomery
this past year.
