Yonder Alonso - with Votto ahead of him, Alonso clearly isn't good enough defensively to be an everyday LFer. He is the Reds best trade chip since they really don't need him and he is a good hitter.
Frazier - I was high on him once, and glad to see him get a shot. But I think he'll amount to a .230 major leaguer......simply because he really hasn't shown much in triple A yet and he's aging fast.
Hamilton - considered by many to be a player to watch at Dayton. Dayton has the next wave of so-called great future Reds major leaguers with Torreyes, Yorman, Juan Duran, Hamilton, Vidal, etc. Hamilton has speed, and after struggling in the first half of the season, like all the Dayton players, is busting out in the second half. I'd miss Hamilton. He's only 20 and on pace for possibly 100 steals.
Sappelt - an interesting guy who has busted out offensively the past 2 seasons, but seems to get little interest from the Reds front office. I get the impression that if he had Hamilton's speed, he'd already be up here with the way he hits. I wish he'd be given a chance. He's definitely a guy who gets on base. We got a ton of guys who K too much.
I'd miss Wood and Hamilton the most. Frankly, I'd rather trade Juan Duran. He K's too much for me in single A. But Yorman would get lonely.
I think it's too much to trade. I think 4 of those guys is plenty. I'd hold Hamilton back.
