    With Mitch Haniger, Jarred Kelenic, Taylor Trammell, and Julio Rodriguez in the outfield for Seattle, Kyle Lewis is on the outside looking in. Why not trade him to get a guy like Freeman who could be their second baseman of the future? For Cleveland, they have several outfield question marks and it’d be worth it to give Lewis a chance in their outfield. Thoughts?

      Kyle Lewis has had three operations on the same knee over the last few years.. two in the last two years.. Guardian fans saw the same level of deterioration of an athletic OF’er with Grady Sizemore who had the same kind of “bone bruise” followed by microfracture surgery followed by more surgery.. to the point of ending his career in Boston following three years of rehabilitation attempts.. In short.. there is NO way the Guardians are giving away one of their top near ML-Ready middle infield prospects for a one legged OF’er.. This would be a pass to “hard” pass pending a medical clearance..

      I don’t know about “several outfield question marks”, but they have 2 for sure. If Kyle Lewis is healthy and can handle a full MLB season then he’s worth the investment shown in this proposal. However, if he cannot stay healthy then losing Freeman could be a huge loss. I want to like this deal due to the corner OF need for Cleveland, but I’m not sold on Lewis’ health. There’s a lot of room for error in this deal, but Lewis is a difference maker for years if healthy. I give it a thumbs up with the option to change my mind real quick should Lewis’ not receive a clean bill of health.
