Another pitcher traded

The Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals have come to an agreement to send pitched Homer Bailey to the Athletics. The Royals will get back prospect Kevin Merrell, a Single-A outfielder that ranked as Oakland’s 17th top prospect.

Bailey has been pitching to 4.80 ERA and a 7-6 record while with Kansas City this season.

I don’t know if the Athletics were really in the running for Wheeler, however I’m sure there were a dozen teams inquiring about Bailey. So this very well may drive up the asking price, but it could also mean absolutely nothing for the Mets and Wheeler.
