Trevor Bauer trade grades: Indians get high marks; Padres give up a lot; what are the Reds doing?

first_imgThe bottom line— The Indians make out like bandits. They get the outfield power they need, an arm that can slot into the rotation in the future and two kids. That’s a big, big haul.— What are the Padres doing? Trading Reyes makes some sense, but dealing Allen with him doesn’t, and only getting one prospect in return is very, very light.— The Reds might not contend this year, and giving up a top prospect hurts, but hey, it can’t ever be bad to get a starter of Bauer’s caliber. Cleveland got a ton — a metric crap-ton, if you will — in return from the Padres and Reds, the other teams involved in the three-way swap.MORE: Here’s how to watch “ChangeUp,” an MLB whiparound show, free on DAZNWithout further ado, let’s break it down:Indians: A-On the surface, this certainly seems as though Cleveland is waving the white flag on the season, but it isn’t. The Indians still have Shane Bieber at the top of the rotation, and he has been a revelation this season. They’re also expecting to get Corey Kluber back from injury in the coming weeks, and Danny Salazar is slated to return this week. Starting pitching isn’t a concern.The Indians got back Yasiel Puig, a rental, from the Reds and a young, controllable stud outfielder in Franmil Reyes from the Padres. Those two should fix some of the offense’s holes and solve the outfield issues the Indians have been having this season — and neglected in the offseason. (I digress.)Bauer was having a good season for the Indians: He was leading the majors in innings pitched and had posted a respectable 3.79 ERA. He is, however, on pace to give up a career high in home runs (even with MLB’s recent massive influx of power, 1.3 home runs per nine innings is up there), and all of his other peripherals have taken a step down from his awesome 2018 season.The Indians also get back Logan Allen, 22-year-old left-hander who was still under prospect status with San Diego. He has had a rough go of it early in his MLB career (eight games in various roles), but he’s still well-regarded, ranking No. 98 in MLB Pipeline’s top 100. Also, if any MLB team can get the most out of Allen, it’s Cleveland.They also get Victor Nova, a 19-year-old infielder/outfielder who’s hitting well over .300 in rookie ball, from the Padres, and Scott Moss, a left-handed pitching prospect, from the Reds.Even though Bauer has been the rock of the rotation this season, Cleveland is still in a good spot with regard to wild-card contention going forward. Adding Puig and Reyes should only help the offense and outfield moving forward. Make no mistake, this deal puts pressure on the rest of the pitching staff to perform over the next few weeks before Kluber makes his return, but on the surface, this is a very, very, very (three verys!) good deal for the Tribe.Padres: C+The Padres might as well change their name to the San Diego Prospects.Netting Taylor Trammell from Cincinnati in the deal — MLB Pipeline’s No. 30 overall prospect — is a decent return, even if they had to part with the 24-year-old Reyes. San Diego is flush with outfielders on its 40-man roster, but none of their potential game-breaking prospects are outfielders.Giving up Allen and Nova in addition to Reyes makes this one a bit of a head-scratcher.That trio seems like a lot to give up — a lot — for one prospect who might profile as a top corner outfielder in the future, essentially a lottery ticket with good odds of being able to hit in the majors. Giving away pieces that are good now for a potentially good piece is iffy. The Padres must see superstar potential in Trammell. That’s really all there is to it — there would be more here, but that’s all the return that San Diego got. Very, very light.Reds: C+The Reds’ pitching has thrived this season. Giving up Trammell hurts, but getting Bauer for at least one additional season could be a safe bet.The Reds have one of the lowest rotation ERAs in baseball this season (3.83), and adding Bauer is only going to help, so long as he stays with Cincinnati past the 4 p.m. ET deadline on July 31.Bauer, Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray make for a formidable top three, and, well, that’s cool and all but … where’s the offense coming from?The Reds, as interesting as they’ve been, likely aren’t going to make the postseason this year. They still have one of the worst offenses in the NL and they gave away Puig’s 22 home runs in the deal. That’s confusing. Even if Bauer is under contract for another season — and he’s in line to get a hefty raise in his final year of arbitration before hitting the open market — giving up a top prospect to maybe, hopefully, potentially compete in 2020 is something else — unless Cincinnati flips Bauer to another contender before the deadlineThe Reds are going to have to make some more big moves to fix that offense, and the process won’t be pretty. As always, prospects are suspects until they prove otherwise, and while it seems questionable to give up a top prospect, if you can get Bauer for now and maybe consider him trade capital for the future, what’s the harm in that? There is a Bauer outage in Cleveland.The Indians reportedly shipped Trevor Bauer, their controversial-yet-effective right-handed starter, to the Reds on Tuesday night, a surprising move that both answers and asks a fair amount of questions. One thing’s for certain: Sending Bauer to southeast Ohio netted the Tribe excellent results.last_img read more
