    Carroll and Kirby were drafted 16th and 20th respectively in 2019. Both have a full six years of control, both look like potentially elite players.

    This is a deal where both teams likely say no. I posted this idea just to see how fans reading these boards might feel about it. But from a value perspective, they’re virtually equals. Kirby had a larger sample size last season, but Carroll adjusted quickly and flashed all 5 tools.

    Worth noting, Seattle’s Matt Brash is working on a cutter with Driveline. So far, so good. He’s still in the conversation as a starting pitcher. Emerson Hancock, Taylor Dollard, and Bryce Miller are all very close to being MLB-ready. So, if Seattle were to fail to land a free agent outfielder, perhaps they’ll turn to the trade route again. Kirby isn’t likely going to be moved, but it should be easy to see how a young Mariner pitcher could be traded for a promising bat.

    Arizona has a logjam of outfielders, and though moving Carroll is highly unlikely–he’s arguably they’re best hitter heading into 2023–they will almost certainly be looking for young pitching in any significant swap and the outfield is clearly their area of strength.

    *Cue the overreactions.
