6/11 Cubs acquire Rodriguez

The Cubs acquired right-handed reliever Henry Rodriguez from the Nationals for Minor League right-handed pitcher Ian Dickson Tuesday night. To make room on the 40-man roster, right-handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez, who was at Triple-A Iowa, was designated for assignment.

Rodriguez, 26, went 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA in 17 relief appearances with the Nationals, totaling 18 innings. He limited opponents to a .203 batting average against, including a .194 mark by right-handers and a .211 mark by left-handers. He was designated for assignment June 4. He has pitched all or part of five Major League seasons with the Athletics and Nationals, and has a career 4.23 ERA in 143 relief appearances. Rodriguez was not expected to arrive in Chicago in time for Wednesday’s game.

Dickson, 22, a 35th round pick in the 2001 Draft, was 2-2 with a 6.88 ERA in 11 appearances (three starts) with Class A Kane County.

So, Dickson was 9 years old when he was drafted? ;)
I’m guessing it was a typo. Was he drafted in 2011, not 2001?

If not, I would think Hoyer is getting the house cleaned of the long-time minor leagers that haven’t made it past Single A
