Nady and Marte on the move?

Xavier Nady was suddenly pulled from tonight's Pirates-Padres game after the first inning, before he'd even had an at-bat. An inning later, FOX Sports cameras caught Damaso Marte giving out hugs in the Pirates dugout. Good bet is both players just got shipped somewhere, my guess is the Mets. The only real fantasy impact is you can no longer count on Marte for saves. Oh, and Steve Pearce might be worth a pickup in NL-only leagues.

UPDATE: Pirates have confirmed that Nady and Marte have been traded pending physicals, but they haven't announced to who yet. The new Pirates closer will either be Yates or Grabow or both. I just picked up Grabow in one league.

UPDATE #2: Shipped to the Yankees for four prospects. Nady should continue starting every day.
