Team Aarnicdy sends: 2016 56th overall selection (4th round)
Team TBD sends: 2016 142nd overall selection (9th round) & $7 in ’16 Auction Budget
Jordan’s thoughts: I like this deal for both teams. I believe in the value of $7. It won’t buy a great player, but if you can now easily bid $2 on 5-7 players versus settling for a dollar, you now have buying power to pick those guys at the end of the draft instead of being stuck. While the early arguement is that it just raises the prices of those players. I’ll still argue that having the flexibility of picking those players is invaluable. The 56th overall pick was used to select outfielder Cornelius Randolph. The 10th overall selection out of high school in the 2015 minor league draft is just 18 years old, extremely raw, and really seems like a reach to trade up for.
