    In my third instalment of “What do the Yankees do with Tauchman?”, this time we’ll send him to Washington. The Nationals have a severe lack of depth around the diamond. Their current 4th outfielder is Andrew Stevenson, he who rides the .500 BABIP wave, and their infield depth consists of Josh Harrison and Jake Noll. Andujar isn’t a clear upgrade over either of them after missing so much time, but he at least has an option remaining in case he can’t separate himself from the rest in the last few weeks of camp. To summarize, the Nats need depth and the Yankees have some available.

    For the return, Cronin provides an optionable lefty that the Yankees sorely need after Britton went down. Similarly, Fuentes is optionable bullpen depth as well. Infante is also included mostly because I was looking for someone that wouldn’t need a 40 man spot this year or next. Feel free to replace him with another prospect of similar value or cash/international signing bonus money.

    • Josh Lew

      Good trade. Works for both teams. Only concern is the yankees might not want to trade two crucial parts of their bench.

    • Luc Girardot

      Im high on Cronin as a Nats fan so I would be kinda reluctant but decent trade.

      • Cameron Nordstrom

        Same here. High ceiling relief only prospects are an intriguing bunch, and Cronin certainly fits that build. And given the bullpen woes the Nats seem have on a near seasonal basis, they could be, understandably, reluctant to part with Cronin.

        • John Bitzer

          You could probably just swap out Cronin with, say, Tim Cate and it would still work.

        • John Bitzer

          And as you may notice, we just launched a change to the likes/dislikes. Now it’s team-specific, instead of being generic, which was hard for people to interpret.

    Good trade, but i don’t know if the Nationals would want to ad another subpar defender to their team, they have already added multiple bat first options in Josh Bell and kyle Shwarber, and they lost another good defender in Adam Eaton.
