PHILADELPHIA -- Sitting six games out in the tough eastern division, the Philadelphia Quakers aren't content to stand pat much longer. G.M D.C. Daly went out for help and made his first deal of the season acquiring reliever Mark Martin(1-1, 3 SV in 32 innings) and IF Jose Ramirez from the New York Bombers of the Continental League for reliever J.J. Medina and IF Josh Monroe.
Medina, 25, was 1-3 with 1 SV in 21 appearances this year, boasting a 6.55 ERA.
The deal saved the Quakers about $1m in salary and is intended to help with depth and bullpen issues.
"We're going to try to tweak what we have. We're not in a bad spot and all it takes is one hot month and we're right back in [the division race]," said Daly after announcing the deal today.
