    With the Khris Davis-Elvis Andrus trade, the Rangers don’t need Willie Calhoun anymore, but they still need starting pitching. The Brewers kinda need a SS, and the Indians are looking to trade Amed Rosario, and they still need an OFer despite the signing of Eddie Rosario. This trade gives each team its’ greatest need, and the Indians get a nice prospect that won’t have a spot on the Rangers due to Josh Jung, but he might have a spot on the Indians. Thoughts?

    I’ve been curious about the Rangers; plan for Calhoun after the Davis trade as well. Defensively, he’s essentially a DH-only type with occasional reps in LF, and since Davis is essentially the same thing, Calhoun is the odd man out. Cleveland seems like a decent trade candidate but they already have Franmil Reyes at DH due to his own defensive short comings. However, I have heard he’s been training hard this offseason on his defense, so Calhoun seems like an inexpensive gamble for Cleveland.

    However, I’m not sure the Brewers go for it. Like you said, they only kinda need a SS. I feel they’ll give Arcia a shot and then turn the reigns over to Urias if he continues to struggle. Milwaukee would have to be convinced that Rosario offers more promise than either of those options, which is slim in my mind. Likewise, they would have to give up a pitcher from an already thin rotation. However, if they’ve already soured on Lauer after one year, they could look to swap him for a fresh start.

    All in all, I think I prefer a Calhoun to Cleveland trade on its own as opposed to involving the Brewers. Cleveland has a lot of pitching depth too so Texas could pry away one of those loose piece. This site’s model accepts Logan Allen for Calhoun but there’s a bit of a gap with Texas might need to pitch in another guy (I suggest Julio Pablo Martinez) if they want Allen.
