In fact, I wouldn't trade Cingrani for him straight up.
Moustakas was 23 and rushed to the show. That line can easy spike quick as he gets his game fully polished at the big league level. He had a line of .270/.325/.478/.803 when he topped his PA from the previous MLB season 89 then hit under .200 his last 60 games. Surviving that first 162 game grind is hard for young players and they often hit the wall much like Todd did this year. Those factors along with his age, contract and pedigree keep his value far higher than Leake.
