Shin-Soo Choo: Trade to the Reds Official

Rotowire.com
Update: Choo was sent to the Reds in Tuesday's three-way deal between the Reds, Diamondbacks and Indians. The Reds got Choo and Jason Donald, the Diamondbacks got Didi Gregorius, Tony Sipp and Lars Anderson, and the Indians got Trevor Bauer, Drew Stubbs, Bryan Shaw and Matt Albers.

Recommendation: Choo has one year left on his deal and has resisted all attempts to extend the deal, at least with the Indians. He gives the Reds the left-handed on-base force that they desperately needed from the leadoff spot, but he'll also have to play center field. The change in ballparks should also benefit Choo, particularly with his power numbers.
