Moyer Trade

here is what baseball america says about the two minor leaguers sent to seattle for jamie moyer:
[Andrew] Baldwin, a 23-year-old righthander, was a fifth-round pick out of Oregon State in 2004. The nephew of John Hiller, who once held the major league single-season save record, he has gone 8-8, 4.04 at high Class A Clearwater this season. Baldwin has a 100-22 K-BB ratio in 147 innings, while opponents have hit .285 with 11 homers against him. He's inconsistent, but when he's at his best he'll show a low-90s fastball and a quality slider.

[Andrew] Barb, 21, signed as a draft-and-follow out of Kirkwood (Iowa) CC in 2004 after being selected in the 40th round out of a Washington high school the previous June. Primarily a catcher as an amateur, he became a full-time pitcher after turning pro. Barb has smoothed out his delivery and now consistently throws in the low 90s. He's still working on his command, control and secondary pitches. In 38 games at low Class A Lakewood, he has gone 6-2, 2.23 with 18 saves. He has a 71-28 K-BB ratio, .166 opponents average and no homers allowed in 61 innings.
