    My previous Braves-Red trade was a lot larger. This trade is much more limited and focuses on lower rated prospects, with Boyle, Davis, and Mey all being either in single A or single A advanced, and none of them currently in the top 20 (these are their 25. 26, 27 and 30th prospects) of the Reds rated prospects.

    In return, the Reds get a half season of Morton, and a few years of Smith. Smith currently has a negative value, but is a solid bullpen piece.

    This trade is what I would consider a trade on the periphery. Reds are four games out in a weak Central, and 3.5 games behind the Padres, so they don’t want to go “all in.” But this is a “low” prospect cost, going for quantity instead of quality/closer to the majors options.

    If things don’t work out for the Reds, they can flip Smith in the offseason and recoup some of this.

    The Braves may have a deal with Morton to only send him back to Tampa or to a very limited number of teams, but if he was willing, this would potentially put him in a playoff race.
