On Sunday the Indians completed a trade with the Dodgers acquiring right-handed pitcher Duke von Schamann in exchange for left-handed pitcher Colt Hynes. Less then 24 hours later the Indians completed a trade with the Orioles acquiring infielder/outfielder Torsten Boss in exchange for right-handed pitcher Preston Guilmet.

Von Schamann, 22, opened the 2014 season at Double-A Chattanooga, where he made one start (W, 7.0IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K).  The 6-5 right-hander split 2013 between Chattanooga and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga where he went a combined 11-7 with a 4.67 ERA in 27 games/23 starts (131.0IP, 146H, 68ER, 38BB, 100K). He owns a three-year professional mark of 18-11 with a 3.93 ERA in 43 games/37 starts (213.0IP, 211H, 93ER, 52BB, 146K).  He was LA’s 15th round selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Texas Tech and will be assigned to the Double-A Akron roster.

Boss, 23, opened the 2014 season in Single-A Frederick, appearing in one game thus far (1-3, 2B, RS).  He spent the 2013 season at Single-A Delmarva of the South Atlantic League, hitting .238 (92-386) with 21 doubles, 2 triples, 7 home runs and 45 RBI in 106 games (44RS, 53BB, .333OB%).  The Lowell, Michigan native was Baltimore’s 8th round selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Michigan State.  He has been assigned to the A Carolina roster.

Both Hynes and Guilmet were designated for assignment on March 30th.

It seem that we got two young players for two players that we
could have got nothing since DFS. Looking a Von Schamann, who opened the 2014 season throwing two hits in seven innings, might have a chance to prove himself this year and being 22 and now only in baseball going into 2 years. Boss, 23,
it seems by looking a his stats might need practice with plate control due to hitting 238 but 21 double, 2 triples and 7 home runs sure lets you know that the potential is there. I think good moves. Thanks Jim & Tony for keeping us current. Good article
