Saarloos trade completed

This came as a shock to me because I didn't remember players-to-be-named were involved. From the Reds:

SAARLOOS TRADE COMPLETED: The Reds and Athletics have completed the 1/22/07 trade in which RHP Kirk Saarloos and a player to be named were acquired in exchange for RHP David Shafer and a player to be named...the Reds have received RHP Daniel Denham (who will be assigned to FSL Sarasota), while the A's received RHP Julio Manon (Sacramento)...Denham, 24, this season went 1-1, 6.10 in 16 relief apps for Class AA Midland and Class A Stockton...Manon, 34, went 1-0, 4.50 in 6 relief apps at Class AAA Louisville and Class A Sarasota.

David Shafer was the AA closer for the Reds last year. I think he put up nice numbers, but I guess management didn't think he would materialize up here.

I heard a month or so ago that Oakland already released him from their minor league system. Not sure what he doing now.
