Perrotto: Some Final Thoughts on The Trade Deadline (+)



Jackson Wolf, Pirates prospects

Brady Falter’s debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates wasn’t dazzling. It also wasn’t bad.

Facing the Brewers on Saturday night at Milwaukee, Falter pitched into the fifth inning and was charged with one run while walking only one of the 17 batters he faced. Yet he did give up six hits and had just two strikeouts.

It was certainly better than how the left-hander pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies this season. He had an 0-7 record and a 5.13 ERA in eight games (seven starts) before being sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

However, I still have a hard time liking the deal that sent infielder Rodolfo Castro to the Phillies for Falter just before baseball’s trade deadline on Tuesday.
