Not sure about that. As a 25 year old innings eater with a career 4.29 ERA, I think he has a decent amount of value to a pitching-starved team that plays in a spacious park. You're talking about a team where Edinson Volquez and his 11+ ERA is the ace! The fact that Leake is a SD native is icing on the cake.
Obviously if he can't bring back much in a trade, then I send him down to get straightened out. But I'd like to address the OF situation sooner rather than later, and he seems like the best candidate to get dealt.
