The Phillies have dealt 36-year old righty swinging 3B/1B Michael Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers for 24-year old lefty starting pitcher Rob Rasmussen. Young played in 126 games for the Phillies this year and he was 129 of 468 (.276 avg, .731 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 8 homers, 42 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Rasmussen came into this season as the Astros’ #19 prospect according to Baseball America. He pitched in 28 games (24 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Dodgers this year and he was 3-11 with a 4.11 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Rasmussen has now pitched in 88 games (77 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 23-32 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. It was a good move for the Phillies to deal Young to the Dodgers for Rasmussen, who is a legit major league prospect.
