Simba ideal QO candidate

Recommended Posts

Simba's great, but given that Arte operates within a budget, I just can't see him being re-signed beyond this year.  If he does indeed depart, I imagine we'll see Fletcher and Rengifo combining to play SS/2B.  LaStella is likely to depart as a free agent, too.

I said before the season I don't think it's worth giving him an extension, and I think I'll probably feel that way regardless of how he performs this season.  Provided Rengifo comes back and TLS plays like his old self, I'd look at shopping him for a starter at the deadline (with control), obviously probably not in a one for one deal.  Our prospects who are very raw will not get a chance to prove anything/break out in the minors this year with no season will not get a chance to increase their trade value, so he could very well being one of, if not our most attractive realistic trade piece.  If at least 4 of Fletcher, Rendon, Rengifo, Ward, Thaiss, Rojas, some other young infielder play well this season, I wouldn't mind trading him for a rental either if it's the best deal.  Also, with all the top SS free agents hitting the market very soon (Seager, Story, Semien, Lindor, Baez), and with Pujols coming off the books, who knows if Arte might decide to add another star hitter?

In a season that may not be completed, why would Simmons or any rental have a lot of value at the trading deadline? I’m not giving up a premium prospect for a guy who I may get very little out of, if we have more virus outbreaks like this week...
