Brett Flowers traded to St. George

The Victoria Seals will have a new first baseman in 2010. Last year's first baseman, Brett Flowers was recently traded to the St. George Roadrunners as compensation for shortstop Eric Pringle. He'll rejoin his old manager, Darrell Evans.

The trade was not a big surprise. With the significant amount of talent in the Seals camp this spring, Flowers became expendable. A big reason he was traded away is that he can only play first base and his defensive abilities would never be confused with Mark Grace's. Flowers hit .301 with 6 homers and 49 RBIs with the Seals last season.

I'm guessing that either Terrence McClain, Shane Cronin or Colin Moro will take over for Flowers at first base.
