With the MLB trade deadline still six months away, it’s never too early to start talking about who might move, right?
So let’s pull out an old crystal ball and think of possible trades from each team. While most trades on Deadline involve minor leaguers on one side of the deal, this exercise focuses primarily on players from the big leagues his roster who can trade based on the team’s greatest needs. guess.
Let’s get started right away.
In most cases you will need: bull-pen
Trade candidate: Pavin Smith/Dominic Fletcher
I don’t like what Madison Bumgarner (4.88 ERA, 4.85 FIP in 2022) and Zach Davis (4.09 ERA, 4.83 FIP) have to offer in 2023, so if the Diamondbacks ever sneak into playoff contention, it’s probably Rookie starters – Ryne Nelson, Dray Jameson and Brandon Fart – have stepped up. The bullpen remains, but the Diamondbacks oddly did little to upgrade in the offseason after finishing 25th in ERA. Scott McGuff, who has 69 saves in the past two seasons in Japan, could emerge as a closer. Dalton: Even after he traded Vasho, the Diamondbacks still have an outfielder, but Smith can factor in his DH at-bat. Fletcher hit .312/.378/.486 in the minors.
