Rangers trade Tim Smith, Manny Pina for Daniel Gutierrez

The Rangers have reportedly traded minor league outfielder Tim Smith and minor league catcher Manny Pina to the Kansas City Royals for 22 year old RHP Daniel Gutierrez.

Our man z has a rundown on the prospects involved over at the DMN blog...basically, the Rangers traded a couple of interesting positional players with limited ceilings for an enigmatic higher-upside pitcher.  I think it is fair to say that the Royals are more likely to get a major leaguer out of the deal, albeit probably a backup or role player, while the Rangers are more likely to get an impact player out of the deal.
