From BeerLeaguer:Phillies swap Escalona for Houston 2B: The Phillies have found a taker for Sergio Escalona, trading the left-hander to Houston for minor league second baseman Albert Cartwright. Cartwright, 23, hit .294/.355/.472 with 10 home runs and 119 strikeouts between Class A and Double A last season, stealing 31 bags, while defensively committing 29 errors. His numbers took a drastic dive after his promotion to Double-A, where he hit only .229/.289/.271 in 154 plate appearances for Corpus Christi. Over his career, he has racked up 112 RBI and 71 stolen bases in 284 games. Although he is not considered a prospect, it's a fair trade-off for Escalona, who was designated for assignment by the Phillies this weekend. A right-handed hitter, Cartwright is a native of the Bahamas.*Escalona was dropped from the Phils 40 man roster to make room for JC Romero.
Yeah, why not.
