This was an experiment: I made a proposition that the Reds get some badly needed bullpen help from the Braves, and then I went through the Reds’ ranked prospects to see who fit within the value parameters and generally looked interesting. Despite the values, I see Siani as the most worthwhile “get”; Hinds probably has more upside but also a lot more risk. Contreras is a throw in; I picked him just for fun since his older brother William is with the Braves.
1. Siani is a Gold Glove caliber glove, I do not include him in the deal. Braves already have Pache and Waters.
2. Substitute Richardson for Siani, I believe he is valued at around 4. As a GM I would not give up pitching without getting some pitching in return.
