    Still has loads of pitching and defensive needs, but those seem like issues that can be solved.

    I remember the lefty/righty bats being an issue in 2015/2016 too and would love to see some balance....

    Springer. Been doing it for years. He's elite. Means more AB's for him.

    I don’t like the word “tanking” because it presumes the team is trying to lose only for a draft pick. I agree they won’t do that. But if this team has a 20-25 record with only 27 games remaining, do...

    Tommy la Stella is a guy who could fit the bill there. Could be a R/L platoon with Grichuk in the lineup. When Grich plays, Teo can DH. When La Stella plays Vlad can DH. Then of course rest days...

    I agree. No Brantley changes my post, but I also think it is helpful to remember that no player "plays everyday" anymore. Everyone gets rest days. "Bench players" can still play 80-120 games.

    I agree with location comment. He has some development to do still, it just seems way premature to me to pencil him up in as a reliever.

    His fastball is 80 grade by professional talent evaluators....

    Kolten Wong remains an interesting complimentary piece. GG at 2B, high OBP, good speed on the base paths, lefty bat.

    But SP still needs to be the priority

    Not sure you are using the phrase properly :).

    But yes, it is clear it was not accurately reported when she tweeted it was a done deal for 3 years. To her credit she admitted the mistake.

    He throws 4 pitches. 2 of them are graded very well (the fastball is the obvious highlight). Most starters rely on their top 2 pitches around 80% of the time and incorporate the 3rd/4th offerings...

    I expect we'll see shorter outings with him. Montoyo doesn't like pitchers going 3 times through the order very often. Pearson never pitched more than 5 innings last year. I imagine getting a guys...

    So, that's not a universally accepted evaluation or projection of him. I think most prospect evaluators would strongly disagree with that.

    I'm still firmly in the camp that believes he can be a...

    Super exciting news. Gotta be at least 1 trade to follow IMO. Not enough playing room on the field for Grichuk, Springer, Teoscar, Gurriel, Tellez and Vladdy. And we are even more RH heavy in the...

    I wouldn't see the need in trading Pearson and I agree.

    Regarding your lineup though, how confident are you with the defense you are putting on the field there? I personally don't have confidence...

    Last I saw him was his start against Sacramento. He was awful. Guards were scoring around him with ease and his hands looked as advertised... really bad. He had one nice game, but hard to see him...

    Yates would be a meaningful addition. I do think back end bullpen help is important. Likewise, I wonder about dollars and term.

    Trade him for Teoscar?

    Seriously though, 7 prospects in the recently released Top 100. More than any team in baseball.
