Between stints with Baltimore in 1954 and the Reds in 1958, Fridley was involved in a few transactions, as noted on his Baseball Reference major league page.
- May 30, 1957: Purchased by the Brooklyn Dodgers from the New York Yankees. (Date given is approximate. Exact date is uncertain.)
- April 10, 1958: Purchased by the Detroit Tigers from the Los Angeles Dodgers. (Date given is approximate. Exact date is uncertain.)
- April 11, 1958: Purchased by the Cincinnati Redlegs from the Detroit Tigers. (Date given is approximate. Exact date is uncertain.)
"Los Angeles announced the acquisition of outfielder Jim Fridley from Denver of the American Assn., in exchange for pitcher Ben Flowers, who was 1-4 with the Angels this year. Fridley has lit .313 for Denver this season."
Los Angeles was a Dodgers AAA team, and Denver a Yankees AAA team. Flowers' Baseball Reference major league page has no mention of the deal at all.
Haven't cracked the other two Fridley deals yet!
Next time, a debt gets paid in a previously Unknown Transaction!
