Even if you spend money like water… San Diego, the prospect of sacrificing a top prospect trade Why?
I spent my money like water, but am I still lacking? There was a prospect that San Diego could once again sacrifice a top prospect with a trade card.
On the 1st (Korean time), the American sports media ‘ESPN’ predicted the trade deadline for the major leagues in the 2023 season, and selected 30 clubs for trade.
‘ESPN’ predicted that San Diego will start to reinforce starting pitchers in the summer trade market, and pointed out Dylan Lesko, a right-handed top prospect, who was nominated in the first round of last year’s rookie draft as a trade candidate for San Diego.
‘ESPN’ pointed out that “San Diego’s starting rotation is still weak. In particular, if Yuna Darvish or Joe Musgrove are injured, it becomes more serious,” predicting that San Diego will start reinforcing starting pitchers in the future.
It’s a matter of course, but you have to make sacrifices to get a quality starting pitcher. The media said, “San Diego wants to keep Jackson Merrill, the team’s top prospect. However, Lesco, who was nominated in the first round last year, is an obvious trade candidate considering that San Diego is in win-now mode.” He foretold the possibility of using the prospect as a trade card.
The fact that Darvish and Blake Snell, the main players of the starting pitching staff, will become free agents after the 2023 season is one of the factors encouraging San Diego’s selection reinforcement. “
For San Diego, which is aiming to win the World Series by aggressively reinforcing its power this year, it cannot but be a false story. San Diego acquired Xander Bogarts, Nelson Cruz, and Matt Carpenter to build the best batting line in the major leagues. In particular, a huge amount of 280 million dollars (approximately 341.3 billion won) was invested in Bogatz in 11 years. On the other hand, the starting pitching staff lacks solidity. There are no proven starting pitchers other than Darvish, Musgrove, and Snell.
What will San Diego do? It remains to be seen whether he will overcome the weakness of the starting pitching staff with batting power or jump into the trade market again with the prospect card.
