Trade Candidates: SP

Recommended Posts

Who are some SP that might be available via trade? 

I can't think of many decent pitchers on rebuilding teams. Robbie Ray? Jon Gray?

It’s pretty hard to look at many teams and see excess quality pitching...
 

Chris Archer

Price/Eovaldi

Marco Gonzales 

Braves have like 8 young arms

Jon Gray

He's trash, he had like hardest exit velo's or hard contact rates in baseball or something, but probably available.

Speaking of some trash, Kyle Freeland interesting buy low guy.  Not sure he would be available but he imploded spectacularly.

You don't like him?

Oh no I do.  I just don't think the Orioles would be trading their best player who happens to be a Rookie.

I added him because a was a decent pitcher on a rebuilding team.  Not sure what their window for contention is.  The price tag would be pretty high I would assume if he would be available.

His π is y2+ x2 and his h2o is e=mc2.  That's pretty damn good.

this post is a bit confusing to me. Gray actually has decent statcast numbers behind him, while Freeland, does not and by all accounts was actualyl really lucky his rookie year. 

Gray barrel % is above league average at 3.9% and sits right there with scherzer and strasburg. Now his hard hit percentage is bottom 20, which means balls are being hit hard, but not on the barrel which although not great, is also probably a sign of him throwing good pitches.

What you want, or what you aim for in my opinion is ground ball out pitchers. Because with a good, rangy infield (which we should have) you can consistently count on those being outs. Now these aren't the type of guys you necessarily want to go for you in game 7 of the playoffs, but these are nice innings eaters who get you to that level.

Dakota Hudson is a good example (not that hes available), but he pitches to contact, groundballs, gets outs, but is prone to a few seeing eye singles and bad games. ACtually Ivan Nova was top 10 in the league in ground ball outs, which really isn't a terrible resigning to eat innings. But others that are or may be availble are Ryu (5th) S. Alcantara (13th) Wade miley (17th), Wheeler (24th) Martin Perez (23rd), Musgrove (32nd).

Don't waste resources via trade. Free agency is better if a team is smart enough. Oh wait, did I just say that?

Amen.  

When this org., especially under this GM, trades for vets, it wastes resources.

Technically they're terrible at free agents not named Abreu also.

I prefer we don't use trade assets on acquiring SP when there is plenty on the FA market that only cost money.

Astros sign Cole, trade Greinke

That really kills their Luxury tax. They don't pay Greinke, AZ does.
