  1. I don’t see Inciarte having anywhere near this value. This site overall does a nice job, but Inciarte does not have any major value like this. Atlanta’s fans see him as a fourth outfielder. There is no chance Cleveland would do this deal. None.

    • John Bitzer

      Agreed on that point. We’re downgrading his value in our mid-season update shortly.

  2. Isaac Barker

    100% agree. Ender is coming off a DL stint where he lost his starting job. His trade value is as low as ever. Would likely need another big arm from the braves system. Kyle Wright or Touki to be realistic here.

    • Cleveland is looking for bats more than arms. Duvall and Inciarte do not offer anything better than they have already and they are more costly. Inciarte won’t play center field as Oscar Mercado is playing very well. If Inciarte is not in center field he has limited value as he does not hit as a corner outfielder. Cleveland is also in the wild card race and gaining ground on the Twins. I don’t see Hand being traded this year. I don’t see Bauer being traded this season unless they fall out of the race by the end of the month or until they know more on the health and return of both Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco. Also they will want to see how Mike Clevenger performs as he returns from his injuries. Pache or Waters would be the prospects that would most interest the Indians, but they aren’t the best fit because the Indians are looking for mlb ready help that can help now and in 2020.

      • Isaac Barker

        yep agree as well. Cleveland would have to fall out of contention to really move anyone of value. I don’t think they will fall off a cliff, they will likely remain in the race. They might miss the second wild card spot (which would be the worst case scenario), but as long as they are close, they aren’t moving big names. As far as Waters and Pache – they aren’t moving in any deal for anymore. I can’t see a scenario where the Braves trade their future 2/3 of the outfield for limited control on anyone that would be realistically available.

        • Thank you for the fun and interesting discussion.
