Red Sox trade news: Boston acquires Andrew Cashner from Orioles

Posted On Aug 16 2020 by

first_imgBut even if he isn’t, or if he is just a reliever in the postseason simply due to roster constraints and trying to get the best pitchers onto the staff, Cashner’s stuff plays up out of the bullpen.He tones it down as a starter but could still hit the high 90s in short stints. Boston has added a good pitcher as either a starter or reliever. That is the big news for the Red Sox.But does this mean the team is done dealing? It’s doubtful. MLB trade rumors: Tigers’ Matthew Boyd monitored by at least 5 teams The Red Sox have added a starting pitcher.Boston acquired Andrew Cashner and cash considerations from the Orioles in exchange for minor league infielder Noelberth Romero and minor league outfielder Elio Prado, the team announced Saturday. MLB trade rumors: Here’s who the Tigers could want from teams targeting Matthew Boyd The #RedSox today acquired RHP Andrew Cashner and cash considerations from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league INF Noelberth Romero and minor league OF Elio Prado.Boston’s 40-man roster is now at 40.— Red Sox (@RedSox) July 13, 2019The defending World Series champions have been rumored to be looking for pitching help over the last few weeks and they have now taken action.With Cashner it remains to be seen exactly how they’ll use him. He is in the middle of a very good year for Baltimore as he has posted a 9-3 record with a 3.83 ERA, but the Red Sox have a pretty well set rotation even if it has underachieved.

Eovaldi has been rumored to be making a move to the bullpen when he gets back so Cashner very well could be a starter down the stretch for the Red Sox.last_img read more


ISU, Creighton economists say new tariff threat makes recession more likely

Posted On Aug 13 2020 by

first_imgJOHNSTON — Two economists warn the escalation of trade tensions with Mexico will “speed up” the arrival of a recession. Iowa State University Extension economist Chad Hart says the tariffs increase the likelihood of a slowdown in the global economy.“It definitely does increase the threat of a recession coming very soon,” Hart says.Creighton University economist Ernie Goss says Iowa’s economy will take a hit if President Donald Trump follows through on the new tariffs he threatened to impose on Mexico last night.“He’s adding 5% tariffs, at least according to his twitter, and the idea is, of course, to incentivize the Mexican government to cease or slow down immigration,” Goss says. “It’s not going to happen. It’s not going to work.”Goss says farmers and rural communities “are getting hit very hard” by tariffs that have already been imposed.“When politics and economics collide, economics loses and politics is winning,” Goss says. “And when politics wins, I’m not so sure it’s good for the consumer and for the producer.”Goss says his calculations indicate the probability of a recession in the early 2020 has doubled in the past 18 months. If the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement doesn’t get ratified because of these new tariffs, Hart says the probability of a recession grows.“You’re talking about three trade partners that make up a gigantic portion of global trade and basically throwing those trade rules up in the air,” Hart says, “creating a lot of uncertainty in the market, creating a lot of volatility.”Hart and Goss made their comments during the “Iowa Press” program that aired over the weekend on Iowa Public Television.last_img read more
