LA Shocker Moves

Shockers trade relief pitcher Sam Parillo and prospect Nick Lawson to St Louis for outfielder Chris Hamilton.  Hamilton, 25, has hit only .226 in two season for St Louis but has shown power, speed, the ability to take a walk, and a strong throwing arm.  LA projects him as a right fielder.

St Louis was willing to deal Hamilton to clear the path for the game's #1 prospect, Bryce Parkman. 

In addition, the Shockers resign 38 year old outfielder Paul Riley for 2 years and 8 million.  Last season Riley hit .302 with a .359 OBP, figures which nearly match his career averages.
