Houston Black Gold Ship Dai to Oklahoma
Friday, May 31st, 2013
It took some time to iron out the details, but the Black Gold and Scissor Tails have agreed to a swap. Oklahoma will get 31-year-old LHP Xun Dai with Houston receiving 22-year-old minor league 2B Bill Meza and 19-year-old minor league SS Rogelio Reyna in return. A source close to the trade talks said the two clubs were initially looking to make a bigger deal, but discussions broke off late last night. The two sides reconvened early today and eventually settled on this deal.
In his lifetime, the 31-year-old Dai has won 63 and lost 13, piling up 757 strikeouts with a 2.81 ERA. Opponents have hit .244 against him.
