Hunter Pence Trade: Giants Send Nate Schierholtz, Two Prospects To Phillies

According to tweets from both ESPN's Jerry Crasnick and CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly, the deal for Philadelphia Phillies OF Hunter Pence will be for OF Nate Schierholtz, Double-A catcher Tommy Joseph and Single-A RHP Seth Rosin.

Pence, a two-time All-Star, will provide a much needed boost to the Giants lineup as they continue to try and fight off the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. Pence is currently hitting .271 with 17 home runs and 59 RBI for the Phillies.

Schierholtz is hitting .257 with five home runs and 17 RBI this season and is a career .270 hitter.

Joseph was drafted in the second round of the 2009 MLB Amateur Draft out of Horizon High School in Scottsdale, Arizona. Joseph has played for Double-A Richmond this season as he's moved up in the organization each year since he was drafted.

Rosin was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft out of the University of Minnesota. He isn't seen as a top level prospect within the Giants organization.
