  • Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey 2019

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have added depth to their infield after reportedly agreeing to a contract with Wilmer Flores.Per's Jeff Passan Joe Maddon Jersey , Flores' deal with the Diamondbacks will be for one year with a team option for 2020.Flores will join the Diamondbacks after spending the past six seasons with the New York Mets. The 27-year-old tied his career high with a .319 on-base percentage in 2018 and has hit at least 11 homers in each of the previous four seasons, when he's averaged 119 games played.In addition to his hitting prowess, Flores brings defensive versatility to Arizona. He has played all four infield positions throughout his career with above-average UZR totals at first base (2.0) and second base (0.9), perFanGraphs. Last season the Venezuelan played 83 of his 126 games at first.The Diamondbacks appear to be entering a rebuild after trading Paul Goldschmidt to the St. Louis Cardinals and with A.J. Pollock still a free agent.Adding Flores gives Arizona manager Torey Lovullo insurance in case shortstop Nick Ahmed, who hit .234 last season, struggles again, or third baseman Jake Lamb misses significant time after playing just 56 games due to a shoulder injury thatrequired surgeryin August. Now Willson Contreras Jersey , we arrive at possibly the brightest feather in Bumgarner's trade-value cap: his price tag.Assuming the Giants pick up his team option (a slam-dunk assumption), he'll earn $12 million in 2019. Contrast that to the $25 million the Chicago Cubs paid Yu Darvish to post a 4.95 ERA and melt into an injury-riddled puddle in 2018. Never mind the money the Cubs will pay Darvish through 2023.Signing an expensive ace is risky. So is trading top prospects, but a play for Bumgarner makes far more short-term sense for New York.San Francisco fans will balk at a Bumgarner trade. Other than catcher Buster Posey, no player had a greater impact on the Giants' trio of even-year championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014.Those days are over, however. San Francisco added veteran pieces last offseason in the hopes of squeezing one more run out of its aging core but finished 73-89, 18.5 games out in the NL West. They fired general manager Bobby Evans. A reshuffle in the front office should likewise mean a reshuffling of the roster."That would certainly be heavy in the equation , and I'm sure that would come up in the interview process," executive Brian Sabean said of a theoretical Bumgarner swap while addressing the club's GM search, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.No matter what, the Giants must bolster a farm system that ranked No. 24 in the game, per Bleacher Report's Joel Reuter.Which brings us back to the Yankees. New York slipped from No. 3 in Reuter's preseason farm-system rankings to No. 16 by the end of the 2018 MiLB season. Mostly, Reuter noted, that's because blue-chip infielders Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar graduated to the show.The Yankees have chips remaining Kyle Hendricks Jersey , however. Left-hander Justus Sheffield is MLB-ready and would be a high-end ask for San Francisco. A deeper package featuring toolsy outfielder Estevan Florial and right-handers Albert Abreu and Domingo Acevedo might pique the Giants' interest.Julio Cortez/Associated PressIn April,'s Buster Olney speculated on the possibility of a Bumgarner blockbuster."The left-hander would become the most coveted trade target in baseball鈥攎aybe one of the most sought-after summer market pieces in baseball history鈥攊f the Giants ever auctioned him off, and he would probably glean at least two high-end prospects for an organization thin on minor-league talent," Olney opined.It'll take a bushel of young talent for the Yankees to net MadBum. It'll take a lot of fan-displeasing fortitude for the Giants to let him go with an eye on the future.Round peg, meet round hole. All statistics courtesy of FanGraphs and Baseball Reference.
