The Dallas Lawmen and Kingston Cannons have put the finishing touches on a deal that was weeks in the making. Dallas will part with 27-year-old 2B Elias Huerta and $1,280,000 in cash, while the Cannons have dealt 22-year-old minor league SS Jose Astudillo and 18-year-old minor league RHP Gary Littlewood. “This one took a while to figure out,” said the Dallas general manager. “We must have gone back to the drawing board five or six times over the past few weeks. I’m glad we finally got the deal done. I think it is a good one for both clubs.”
Huerta has a .237 career batting average and has hit a total of 10 home runs.
