    My thought process beind this trade:

    Rays trade from a position of depth (starting rotation and farm system), to accquire Merrifield. I’m not sure how they would align things defensively to get him in the lineup, but he would bat leadoff. They also accquire a few prospects that they would probably be able to get more out of than the systems they’re currently in.

    Angels accquire a much needed quality SP on his rookie contract, along with an underrated pen arm with late inning stuff, and a pitching prospect with an up arrow by his name. They give up their second best prospect (fringe top 75’ish-100’ish depending on the publication), and a young but quality pitching prospect.

    The Royals accquire one of the most electric pitching prospect in baseball, but there real bullpen potential which would severely lessen his value. They also accquire a top 100 OF prospect, and a top 200 OF prospect.

      Yeah, this one is interesting from a lot of angles. Nice work.
