"I'm actually relieved", Neshek said shortly after learning of the trade after the Phillies' 9-0 win over Houston (see game recap).

Neshek, who's been at the center of trade rumors since spring training, said he liked playing for the Phillies. They'll have to add more than a couple notable names to that group this November, including J.P. Crawford, Rhys Hoskins, Andrew Pullin, Carlos Tocci, and Seranthony Dominguez, among others.

We got a young starter, a young reliever, and a young shortstop that can do a lot of things that we like. But we like all three of these guys for a variety of reasons. Pitching at Low-A Asheville this season, Requena held a 2.85 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 97/25 K/BB ratio over the course of 117 innings (19 starts).

Gomez, 20, is batting.324 with a.374 on-base percentage and a.437 slugging percentage for Asheville.

Gomez was the only of the three prospects the Rockies surrendered who was ranked in's top 30 for the organization.

Neshek's job is multifaceted: to help out in the late innings, yes, but also to take pressure off Rockies relievers Greg Holland and Jake McGee, each of whom has dealt with injury issues in recent years.

It's clear that she has nothing but affection for her fellow Black Panther costars-who include Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Kaluuya, and Danai Gurira-and loves snapping pics with the cast.
