I am not necessarily against your 'trade him while his stock is at its highest' idea. I was just simply addressing his defense.
Also I think you have to throw in his range on that also as he gets to balls even elite SS don't get to. How many of his throws or errors are on plays he makes look normal but other SS at his level struggle with because of their athletic ability?
