Phillies trade pitcher Mike Cisco to Los Angeles Angels for ‘no compensation’

When it came down to dealing right-hander Mike Cisco, no price seemed fair to Philadelphia Phillies GM Ruben Amaro. So he literally traded Cisco to the Los Angeles Angels for nothing.

No compensation. No compensation? How can it be a trade when one team doesn't get anything back? There was no exchange of commodities, no swap of goods or services. It's not a release, or a waiver wire transaction, because the Cisco's contract wasn't at the mercy of any team that might have wanted him. It's not a sale, either. Players have been sold for money before — it's kind of awkward if you think about it — but the Phillies received no money. They received nothing!

Even pitcher Dickie Noles, whom the Cubs infamously traded for Dickie Noles, was traded for something. Himself!

Has a player ever been traded for nothing before? It must have — even though it would seem to be against the rules, or else it would be more common. Unless Amaro just conjured it.

Cisco is 25 years old and isn't a major leaguer, but his recent minor league track record suggests he might get a shot in the majors at some point.
