    Angels fans may not adore the idea of this trade package, but the on-field value it returns is undeniable. Contreras is an impact catcher on both sides of the baseball. Meanwhile, Hendricks gives consistent and dependable innings as a genuine #2 pitcher under excellent cost control. Angels fans may scoff at moving their two best pitching prospects, but odds are they’ll be able to buy pitching in free agency once Pujols and Upton conclude their Angels tenure. This move positions them to compete in 2021-2023.

    Meanwhile, the Cubs shed around $20m in salary and continue their steady build toward the Cubs team of the future. LHP Reid Detmers was a top-10 draft pick in 2020 while RHP Chris Rodriguez has shown frontline stuff when healthy. By now, everyone knows Brandon Marsh, plus lefty bat/plus defender in CF. Jeremiah Jackson features the kind of exit velocity you dream of finding in a middle infielder.
