Sox Send Prospect To MIL To Complete Thornburg Deal
Finally the last compensation piece for the Tyler Thornburg deal has been announced by the Red Sox, and it involves a highly regarded infielder.
Coca was listed as a top 25 player in the Sox system by Baseball America and 37th in the SoxProspects.com list of prospects. He joins Travis Shaw, Josh Pennington, and Mauricio Dubon as players sent to Milwaukee as part of the deal.
Thornburg has yet to pitch for Boston in 2017, but was able to begin a throwing program, starting with long toss of 90 feet recently.
