RockHounds Acquire Jake Goebbert

By Greg Bergman / Midland RockHounds | April 5, 2013 1:18 PM ET

The RockHounds already have movement on the roster after a day into the season.  Yesterday, pitcher Josh Stinson was claimed off waivers by the Baltimore Orioles.  Today, the A's announced a trade with Houston for Jake Goebbert (traded for Travis Blackley).  The left handed outfielder has spent parts of the last two seasons in the Texas League with the Corpus Christi Hooks, batting over .300 during both stints.

The RockHounds continue their season opening road trip tonight in Springdale, Arkansas and hope to build on an 11-0 opening night win behind Zach Neal.

First pitch is at 7:00 PM from Arvest Ballpark.  Listen to the Hounds all summer long on KCRS AM 550.
