      Agreed. If Soto’s transformation is real, and he continues this lights-out pitching, his value will climb quite a bit from here.

    Barreto showed on twitter, that he isn’t happy with sitting on the bench and no one can blame him for that. I know, that there could be a spot for him in 2021 A’s, but if Oakland decides to move on, it is interesting to see who can take him. The Tigers could be a fit, he should get way more playing time. The A’s have a window now, so I’m more intrested in guys, who could help them immediately. Bullpen might be a problem for Oakland, because half of the relievers are scheduled for free agency after 2020. It could be difficult to re-sign some of the guys, because Chapman and Olson become arbitration eligible.

    That’s why I took Soto, who is hot, and the system accepted this trade. Very possible, that the Tigers view him as the future and make him unavailable, but maybe they will sell high. The A’s have other blocked bats to offer.

    I’m not saying this is a perfect trade or that I would have accepted it no matter which GM I were, but it surely looks like an interesting trade idea worth putting on the board.
