    Braves should be sellers this year with an eye to ’22 and beyond. Here they take on the risk of Suarez’s contract, hoping he’ll bounce back to pre-’20 form. In exchange, the Reds get an actual SS with one more year of control (not a pure rental) along with a rental in Morton and a rebound project in Newcomb. Maybe he’s their next Lucas Sims (another former Brave who “figured it out” with the Reds.

    The Braves hope that Senzel eventually figures something out (sure hasn’t so far) as well as hoping Suarez can be a suitable SS for them, or move Riley to OF and slot Suarez into 3B. Hinds is the “insurance policy” that sweetens the pot for the Braves.

    This trade makes perfect sense to me, but the fact is that the Braves are buying, not selling – Pedersen and Vogt deals are pretty clear on this.
