  1. You continue to try to get a valuable piece for an overpriced 4th outfielder and an injured prospect.

    • John Bitzer

      To counter that point: I would argue that Inciarte is not overpriced at all (granted, I’m biased, having contributed to his valuation here). He brings gold-glove defense to a premium position, without even considering his offense; and he’s on a cheap contract with multiple years of control. And just because Gohara is injured doesn’t mean he’s not tradeable, or doesn’t have value. There’s still upside there, and teams have shown a willingness to look longer-term when trading for prospects. Billy Beane traded for two injured prospects in the Sonny Gray trade (I know they haven’t panned out yet, but my point is that he agreed to that deal).

  2. Lincoln DD

    I don’t know that Inciarte would have a lot of value to a team like the Blue Jays, who are in the middle of a rebuild. He’s not going to maintain gold glove-level defense forever (30-year-old Juan Lagares looks like he’s lost a step this year…), and it’s not hard to see him start to decline defensively just as a rebuilding team is starting to ramp things up.

    But Inciarte could bring a lot of value to a contender, so I’m going to send him to outfielder-starved Cleveland in a deal for Bauer. 🙂

    • Cleveland has a young center fielder named Oscar Mercado that they are high on. The Tribe has no need for Inciarte.
