(GAME DATE — July 25, 2020) — With the July 31 trade deadline fast approaching, the Admirals and the Deputies finalized a deal this afternoon. St. Petersburg has traded for 28-year-old C “Disco” Stu Wakeham and in return Dallas will receive 29-year-old minor league 2B Jon Martinez.
This year Martinez has hit at a .125 pace and produced 1 RBIs, no home runs and scored 1 run. Dallas will likely put the 29-year-old to work straight away to test his capabilities with that team. He has batted .221 in 7 seasons with St. Pete’s, and has had several spells in the minors to work on mechanics and timing.
