The Twins have traded starting pitcher Jose Berrios to the Toronto Blue Jays.

What did Minnesota get in exchange for the 27-year-old two-time All-Star pitcher? A haul.

Austin Martin: He's a 22-year-old shortstop/outfielder who is ranked as the No. 2 prospect in the Blue Jays' organization. He's also the No. 16-ranked prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. 

Martin was the fith overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft. At Class AA New Hampshire he's slashing .281/.424/.383 with two homers, two triples, ten doubles and nine stolen bases. 

Simeon Woods Richardson: He's a 6-foot-3 right-handed starter who is only 20 years old and is the No. 4 prospect in Toronto's organization. Woods Richardson is currently at Class AA where he has a 5.76 ERA in 11 starts, though while the ERA is high he's blowing batters away with 67 strikeouts in 45.1 innings. 

The MLB trade deadline hits at 3 p.m. Central Time Friday.
