Pirates Trade Joe Martinez

The Pirates have dealt pitcher Joe Martinez, who recently was dumped from the 40-man, to the Indians for future considerations. Martinez was acquired along with John Bowker last summer for Javier Lopez in a deal I liked at the time, but it appears the Pirates won't get much use out of either player. UPDATE: Vlad points out this report, which says the Pirates are getting cash or a player to be named. UPDATE: A poster at OnlyBucs wonders if the PTBNL might have something to do with Josh Rodriguez, who the Pirates took from the Indians in the Rule 5 draft.
