Los Angeles/Hickory trade

Today, Los Angeles and Hickory have made their first trade since Frank Ferrara took over the Huskers franchise. "I heard that Hickory needed a 1B after Mudge got hurt," Los Angeles GM Michael Weintraub stated. "I had Soriano available, so I called up Frank and introduced myself. We had a deal 48 hours later."

Blocked at 1B and in the outfield in Los Angeles, Federico Soriano now finds himself the starting 1B for the Huskers. Traveling to the heartland with him is swingman pitcher John Stalvey.

In return, the Scorpions gets another ace for the rotation, Armando Carballo, as well as 3rd and 4th round picks in the 2015 draft. 1B Richard Peel was also obtained, but has been informed not to sign any leases in the Los Angeles area as the team is still evaluating their backup 1B options.
