For Art Charles? Solid move. Charles is basically a non-prospect and Schwimer has a couple of options left and provides more depth. He struggles with command but he can miss bats. Extreme flyball pitcher though. Velocity sits in the low 90's, can touch as high as 95-96 at best. FB/SL combo.

Jays will have 40 man roster spots open up as guys like Perez/Drabek/Hutchison/McGowan (perhaps Cooper as well?) hit the 60 man DL so they can fit these guys in. I'd like to see another move like that for an infielder (3rd/1B) and a starter. Could try claiming guys off waivers now as well.
doesn't Charles have some good power though? Interesting to see the trades continuing already. We should save some spots for waiver pick ups. We may be able to find some good options with rosters filling up in the next few weeks.
