Houston acquires relief help

The Houston Riverdogs made a trade with the Jackson Vipers to shore up their bullpen.

Houston gets: RP Tom Cummings
Jackson gets: RP Andre Parrish, RP Joe Street (AA)

Analysis: Cummings is a good young left-handed reliever who's been lights out since joining the Riverdogs. Parrish is a step behind Cummings, but a contributor on the ML level out of the bullpen. If Joe Street can develop his curveball to be a good second pitch, he could end up being the best reliever out of the three when it's all said and done.
