Team gets international bonus pool money in return

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

As news broke that Andres Munoz was called up, a corresponding move was expected to be announced soon after. That said, Phil Maton has been traded to the Cleveland Indians and optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

Maton has a career 5.02 ERA. He also owns a 7.77 ERA this year.

Fortunately, Columbus has casinos. With an ERA like that, he may want to hit the slots.
