Marshall Law trades away
- Michael Kopech – $0 cc
- Kyle Freeland – $7
Suplex City trades away
- Joey Gallo
- Dane Dunning
So Michael Kopech is rated as Baseball America’s 29th best prospect, part of the package the Red Sox gave up to get Chris Sale. He apparently has the stuff to be top of the line, but has lacked the arm health. He is the target here, as he is a high ceiling player you dream about becoming your fantasy team ace.
Kyle Freeland had a nice 2018 in Colorado. That’s something. Pitching in Colorado is tough, he has been not great the last 2 years. He’s a SP for $7 so he has value, and i would keep him.
Gallo….wasn’t great in 2020..4.4 fantasy points per game. In 2019 he was 7.9 fantasy points per game over just 240AB’s. Was the new ballpark being less hitter friendly the reason for Gallo’s drop in production? Was it just small sample size? If he is a 4.4 point per game player this trade makes a lot of sense. I would view him more as a 6 per game player with CF, LF,RF eligibility.
Dane Dunning is Baseball America’s 95th best prospect in the latest rankings and made 7 starts this past season with numbers like this Whip 1.11, 9.3K/9 and 3.4BB/9. He seems like a solid #3 in the making.
In my view if you take Dunning out of the trade it makes more sense. Gallo for Kopech seems about right. I’m not sure if Suplex likes Freeland more than I do or what but I have to side with Marshall here. If Freeland returns to 2018 form than it looks much better. If Gallo doesn’t bounce back it looks much better, but really the trade hinges on Kopech. One of those trade reviews where i look silly in a few years when Michal Kopech is the Cy young winner. Shoot your shot.
