    In this scenario, HOU nets Caleb Smith to backfill Verlander, and adds a left-handed veteran bench bat in Joyce, and a veteran bullpen weapon in Stanek. (While I’m sure MIA is not itching to give Stanek away, the reality is that he likely does not factor largely into their future plans and thus is expendable if the right deal comes along.)

    Kyle Tucker returns home to Florida, and is installed as both a true every day player (finally) and a definitive building block for MIA moving forward. While it’s true that MIA boasts one of the best farm systems in baseball right now, a guy like Tucker is as low-risk as they come, and that’s something I think MIA is in the market for at this stage of their rebuild.
    .

    The numbers indicate that this would be an overpay for HOU, but that’s likely to be the reality now that the rest of the league knows their need. Honestly, I toyed with adding another low level, high-upside piece from HOU, but ultimately decided against it.

    Regardless, MIA still controls three (3) more arb. years on Caleb Smith, so any team that acquires him will likely need to overpay to some extent.
