    Pretty decent trade… Addresses more than just the OF need for the Guardians by providing two 40-Man roster slots that are needed. The Angels are able to get a MOR/BOR SP, a starting SS who can also play 2B and a prospect pitcher to dream on.

    As a possible addendum.. the Angels do not solve one need that can be added to the deal: A fourth OF’er/starting CF’er to either rest Mike Trout.. or displace him to a corner OF spot.. If Brad Zimmer (2.6) was added to the Angels side.. and Ky Bush (3.3) was added to the Guardains side.. the valuation would remain pretty close (21.3 v 21.1) while the Guardians need of LHRP would certainly fill that need.

      I do like the addendum. Not sure Angels would be willing to give up Bush for Zimmer, but maybe a slightly lower level pitching prospect.

        Zimmer does need a change of scenery.. He’s a top flight defensive OF’er that can play all three spots.. He can steal a base and will go first to third on most singles.. He’s a complete ball player that has some significant pop in his swing.. but.. If a pitcher is prefered for Ky Bush.. keep Zimmer for the change of scenery benefit..and choose between guys like Tommy Mace, Cody Morris and Carlos Vargas as “deep” starting pitching prospects w/ some floors as middle/back of pen relievers.. Thanks for the response..

        I don’t think Guardians even need something back. Add in Zimmer to the above deal. This would be too much for the Trade tool to accept, but the Guardians are looking for value consolidation (40-man challenge), which means that the overall value will likely need to be more in Angels favor.
