Charlotte Shores Defense, Arizona Goes Young

Charlotte made a deal with Arizona with the intent to shore up its defense at 2B and CF while Arizona attempts a youth movement.

Charlotte gets: CF Justin Hernandez and Closer Vic Trevino
Arizona gets: MR Paul Schwartz and LF Wilson Hughes

Analysis: Charlotte gets a CF that helps their defense and provides right-handed hitting help for the offense in Hernandez. Trevino provides a strong left-handed closing help in the pen. Arizona gets a formidable left-handed long reliever prospect in Schwartz and a adequate for average hitting LF in Hughes. Both appear to have gotten what they needed in the trade.
