By Connor Byrne May 21, at 1: Of the seven players featured below, five have found themselves in trade rumors dating back to last season. Meanwhile, the other two signed short-term contracts with bottom-feeding teams during the winter and, as a result, entered the year as prospective trade chips. Andrew McCutchen , Pirates: Few players had more fascinating offseasons than McCutchen, a five-time All-Star who looked like a strong bet to leave the Pirates via trade over the winter.
At the time, McCutchen was coming off the worst season of his career as a defender, hitter and baserunner. According to expected weighted on-base average xwOBA , which uses exit velocity and launch angle to judge hitters, McCutchen should have a. Brian Dozier , Twins: Like McCutchen, Dozier was prominent in trade rumors over the winter, when it looked as if the Twins would send the second baseman to the Dodgers.
However, fresh off a season in which he mashed 42 home runs and stole 18 bases on 20 attempts, the Twins balked at swapping Dozier for high-end pitching prospect Jose De Leon.
Moreover, his xwOBA sits at. Jeremy Hellickson , Phillies: Hellickson, after all, ranks last among qualified starters in strikeouts per nine innings 3. And while Hellickson has only surrendered a. Michael Saunders , Phillies: Saunders fell off a cliff as the season went on, however, and has continued to struggle in Todd Frazier , White Sox: Frazier entered this season having combined for homers 40 in and a.
Frazier is walking more and striking out less than ever, and his. Melky Cabrera , White Sox: Bartolo Colon , Braves: He also has just two quality starts in nine attempts, the latest of which came April All told, Colon has managed a dreadful 6.
But everyone LOVES Bartolo! If you need emotions to tell what RiverCatsFilms said was sarcasm, I think there are bigger issues at play…. But Bartolo is a fan-favorite, and will sell games. The Mets desperately need Colon right now. I still think the twins did the right thing not trading Dozier for De Leon. He started slow last year too.

He will heat up soon. Depends on what they ultimately trade Dozier for. As of right now I think it was a mistake on their part because the market for him has really gone down.
But its way too early to determine anything. In fact, I think Forsythe might has been the better player overall by a bit iirc.
I doubt the Twins trade him at all. He is pitching poorly and not going to fetch the giants any elite prospects like he could have just as recently as last offseason.
Cueto certainly will still cost elite prospects.
Cueto was never talked about as a big time trade guy since people thought the Giants would still be good and need him. Colon was not pulled because of rain he was pulled before the rain delay and replaced by Ian Krol. That needs to be changed. I wish the angels would sign him next year. Yangervis Solarte should be on this list. He was talked about when dodgers were looking for 2B options.
I agree that the value of Todd Frazier, Melky Cabrera and Andrew McCutchen have depreciated. In addition, the values of Francisco Rodriguez, Anibal Sanchez and Fernando Rodney have disappeared completely. Helleckson is pitching well and the Twins are still in the division hunt. The slim market is non existent to this point. Please login to leave a reply.
