I mean if Billy Hamilton were a corner outfielder, his value would plummet. But he isn't. He is a center fielder.
Granted, but I think it is likely that Cingrani and Corcino (assuming health stays ok) will be at least serviceable major league pitchers, I think it is just as likely that Gregorius can't hit enough to hold a spot in the big leagues. I really question how Didi's bat plays in the Majors.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
