Astros make minor-league trade

Evan Drellich just, like, out of nowhere, tweeted that the Astros traded pitcher Michael Dimock to the Padres for RHP Miguel Severino.

Dimock was the Astros' 37th Round pick of the 2012 draft. At Lancaster in 2013, Dimock allowed 41H/19ER, with 36K:12BB in 41.2IP. In 2014 for Corpus, Dimock had posted 27.1IP, allowing 26H/10ER, 21K:7BB in 27.1IP.

Severino is a 21-year old 6'3" 180lb RHP out of San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic. He signed as an international free agent with the Padres and has, struggled a bit with his control. In 2012, his professional debut, Severino threw 38.1IP, 30H/18ER, with 26K:24BB. In 2013 in domestic Rookie Ball, he threw 20.1IP, allowing 25H/20ER, 17K:26BB. Back in the Dominican Summer League, Severino has thrown in four games, facing 17 batters and walking nine of them.

37-1119: RHP Michael Dimock

With the 1st pick of the 37th Round (1119th overall), the Astros select 6'2" 194lb RHP Michael Dimock, a senior closer out of Wake Forest.

Wake's Head Coach:
"Michael emerged last year as a true closer. He has always featured a good hard fastball and a dominant slider, but now he commands them both and has added a solid changeup. Look for him to set the standard for end of the game guys in our league this year."

In 28 games in 2012, Dimock threw 42IP, with 38K:19BB, getting 12 saves to go along with a 3.43 ERA and a .248 BAA.

Coming out of high school, Dimock was ranked the 20th-best prospect in North Carolina, and was the All-State Player of the Year.
