Breaking: Royals Send Rick Ankiel and Kyle Farnsworth to Atlanta, Recieve Tim Collins and Two Others

Rick Ankiel and Kyle Farnsworth have been sent to the Braves. The Royals have received LHP Tim Collins back in return. Reportedly, the Royals have also obtained Jesse Chavez and Gregor Blanco in the deal.

Collins, a 20 year old LHP, was a part of this month's Yunel Escobar trade. Because of the notoriety of that deal, there's quite a bit out there about him. (Hint hint, guys.) He has a 2.35 ERA in 202 career minor league innings. He is not a big guy.

Jesse Chavez is a 26 year old reliever that is reportedly, again, headed to the KC bullpen. (stats here)

Gregor Blanco is a 26 year old outfielder. (stats here) His Major League numbers are kinda all over the place, but he's hit well in extremely limited playing time this season.
