When does Royce get back from injury? Half way through the year, I think. That makes it a hard pill to swallow that Arcia is the only option for the Braves until he comes back.
You’re assuming that Grissom can play a reasonable ss. I personally don’t think he can and will be a 2B and/or 3B where he would excel. The Braves don’t have 2B or 3B openings, but do ss. I would trade Grissom for Lewis’s upside and a relatively low cost like Andrus or Iglesias to fill in and team with Arias until Lewis is ready. Also, you capitalize on Grissom’s value by adding a comp pick and a couple of long range lottery tickets. Twins get a plug and play 2B or 3B depending on what they do with Polanco. Obviously, Correa is playing ss for the Twins until Brooks Lee pushes him off.
