So he's going to be trade bait from Washington..
1. He only finished his first MLB season last year: .269/.308/.392; 10 HR, 65 RBI, 17 SB
2. 5 years away from free agency, so nice for the wallet
3. Washington wants starting pitching...cause the FA class is pretty much all gone thanks in part to the Dodgers..
I don't know:
1. His defense v. Uribe
2. How great of SP Washington would want...
Does anyone know more?
Would Perhaps some lower-end SP from the Dodgers (Ely, Monk, or something?) + prospect (or 2) been able to get this guy?
He seems like a better option for the Dodgers compared to the 3/21 contract given to Uribe.. but I'm not really that well versed on this guy or situation. Thoughts?
