Kyle Farmer was acquired as a part of the big Dodgers trade that brought Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, and Alex Wood to Cincinnati. Puig and Kemp are now gone, but Farmer has been a good role player for the Reds. He has played first, second, and third base, catcher, and has even pitched. In his 1 1/3 inning of relief on August 8 against the Cubs, he gave up one hit and no runs.
…and he works for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Reds completed one of the biggest trades in recent franchise history when they acquired Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood, Matt Kemp, and Kyle Farmer from Hollywood for a couple of prospects and Homer Bailey‘s contract. Baseball-reference.com was quick to update the first three’s mugshots, too.
Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you to all my friends in the blogosphere and on Twitter that have traded cards and communicated with me in 2018. I’m looking forward to a great 2019 on the field and on the blog!
