USMLBAP - The Little Rock Raiders agreed to trade closer Victor Tejada to the Arizona Pumas in exchange for minor league first baseman Kevin Mailman tonight. The trade is dependent on Tejada agreeing to waive his no-trade clause.

Tejada will bring a great set-up/closer to the Puma lineup. With him, Tejada brings in a 1.76 ERA while holding opposing batters to a .237 ERA. He will be a welcomed addition to a set-up staff who, combined, have a 3.84 ERA. He may even replace current Puma closer, Gary Koch, who is 24-for-30 in save situations with a 4.85 ERA.

For the Raiders, Kevin "the Mailman" Mailman will probably spend some time at Triple-A but could very well be called up to the big leagues when the playoffs arrive. Mailman does not feature a ton of power, but with a great batting eye and contact rating, he will be a mainstay on the base paths. Mailman will fit in very well to the Pumas organization.
