Rendon, Suarez and Albies


Recommended Posts

With Jose Altuve occupying Second Base I have a bit of a conundrum owning these three quality players.  One can start at third, and one in the Utility spot.  That leaves one on the bench.  Ozzie was the obvious choice for the bench spot until recently.  However now he's tremendously hot.

 

I'd be very open to flipping one of these three players for an Outfielder, Starting Pitcher or possibly a Shortstop.  Which one should I deal though? 

 

I'm leaning towards Albies, although I'll admit being biased against him because I tend to be wary of young hitters who succeed despite not walking very much.  Am I correct in valuing him the least?  And should I continue to expect continuing inconsistencies from him?

It's always tough to gauge players who don't walks much like Albies has shown so far. When they don't hit they aren't getting on base to score runs or in some cases steal, also makes their slumps much more difficult to weather, guys like Abreu/Adam Jones come to mind and can be a nightmare. Suarez has been really good going back to last year and Rendon has been pretty good too. Not sure where each players ceilings might ultimately be as they are all relatively young still. Think I'd try to sell as high as you can on Albies, I feel Suarez/Rendom may be more consistent ROS. Albies is still a young hitter who could hit another decent slump or two ROS, as he continues to gain experience and figure things out, make adjustments to pitchers adjusting to him. You should be able to get a player you need for him how he's raking currently.

You're a good person to ask this question to since you have Correa.  Would Albies, Peraza and Hader or Godley for a hurt Correa be too risky on my part?

 

Obviously the upside with Correa is massive, particularly for a Shortstop.  But how long will that back injury linger?  And if so will it significantly hurt his ability to slug?  I'd love to buy low on Correa.  It's just a question if giving up Albies and Peraza is worth the injury risk.

I'd rather have Correa than Peraza at SS. Because Albies seems like the odd man out for you, I think getting Correa would be a nice move, although so would a OF or SP upgrade. Not sure how worried I am over Correa's back, but he's had some DL time in his young career. Hopefully he will have a nice second half, HOU is likely going to be a bit over protective with him too. You probably wouldn't get Lindor the way he's playing even with good players you're giving up, I think landing Correa would be a decent move if you want to upgrade SS. 

 

If you got Correa, an OF or SP of similar value, you still have the chance to have a net loss in production. If Albies doesn't trip up ROS and Peraza can keep a pace somewhere around what he's done lately, then that's some very solid production. I think Correa would end up being a big SS upgrade. Don't know if you've kicked the tires on a OF or SP to see what anyone would be willing to give up.
