Yeah, maybe Bloom has a good idea of what it'll cost to sign Suzuki. He may also feel that he needs to give Duran 400 ABs before trading him. If Duran is an offense-only player, he's still valuable. There was talk that Duran benefited from a wind tunnel at Worcester which was why he had such extreme home/away splits. We need to figure out whether he can be a major-league player, we really need to graduate more pre-arb players.Yes, this trade just cannot be evaluated as a standalone. If we've done nothing else by the time the season starts (whenever that may be) then yeah it could be a stinker. But if this results in moving Verdugo over and re-signing Schwarber it could be great. And/or if it results in signing Seiya Suzuki, it could be great.
