    Braves take on Andres + the rangers money gets sent to ATL along with Chapman. A’s get Riley who slots in at 3B, Wright in the rotation, they save 5 million with Inciarte vs Andrus, Waters in RF in 2022, and a monster with Langeliars at catcher in 2022. A’s style trade get value now & v aloe for the future before an asset gets to expensive.

    Braves get the 3B of the Future, plus a good bench player in Andrus for $5 million extra in 2021.

    I think it works

    Down vote.

    I appreciate you factoring in the economics. But… Andrus has full No-Trade protection. He waived his 10-5 rights to come to Oakland and be the starting SS and his contract provides a full NTC if traded. How do the Braves convince him to come over with Swanson and Albies locked in as starters?

    Then there’s the return for Oakland. Riley isn’t a good defensive 3B and it’s fair to wonder if average defense will be obtainable. The bat might be about ready to break out but personally, I think he’s a COF in the not too distant future. I’m not sure Langeliers is ready by 2022 but even if he is, Sean Murphy has the #1 Catcher locked down. Wright’s fastball is designed to put souveniers in the stands; I’d prefer a different arm here. I do love Waters as a prospect.

    This deal doesn’t work.
