In a 12 team H2H non-keeper,
I would get: Heyward, Pablo Sandoval, and Niemann
I would give: Latos and Ellsbury
Considering my team sucks right now, would you make the trade? Here is my team:
1B Jorge Cantu
SS Alex Gonzalez
OF Domonic Brown
OF Bobby Abreu
UTL Andres Torres
BN Adam Jones
RP K Rod
What do you think, I had 10 wins and 1 loss last week with an ERA under 3.00 pull the trigger? Will Pablo snap out of it?
Niemann's numbers look great at a glance, but his last month is:
IP 35.0 K 28 W 3 ERA 4.11 WHIP 1.40
Sandoval's slump looks even worse; he's not getting on base, and not bringing people home. Swings at everything.
Heyward is great. Should continue to produce, and the guy stole home last night!
So... you'd be getting one playable guy and two to bench and hope for a turn-around.
You're giving up Latos, who is excellent but will likely hit a hush-hush innings limit in the next few weeks, and Ellsbury - who should be back in a few weeks, in time to really contribute to the playoffs.
Overall, probably a decent deal, but can you spare the slots to wait out a possible return on Sandoval and Niemann? It'd definitely be worth it if they both get back to early season form, but personally I'd try to wrap a reliable producer into the deal instead of those two.
