Wando alum Mike Cisco was traded to the Angels on Sunday morning in what might be a first in Major League Baseball. Cisco's former team, the Phillies, received no compensation in return for sending the former South Carolina star out west.
Cisco, who was a 36th round pick in the 2008 MLB Draft, has spent 5 seasons in Philadelphia's minor league system. Last year he split time between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley with an ERA of just 1.80 in 75 innings pitched.
Cisco has not returned a call seeking comment on the trade.
