    Granted, I haven't kept up quite as well as usually with my phillies prospects this year, but regardless, I have no clue who this dude is, so I'm good with that.

    Braves also acquire Robbie Grossman, presumably as a short-side platoon mate for Eddie Rosario.
    Anyone know if Odorizzi starts every 5th game for the Braves? It looks like they already have 5 starts, but Odorizzi has pitched well this year and I figure they acquired him to have him pitch. Do they bump Strider, despite him pitching well?

    I've been hearing that they would be looking to limit Strider's innings down the stretch. Given that he's already accustomed to long relief, it seems like a smart move to save something in the tank for the playoffs.

Hajjar looks like a back of the rotation/bullpen guy, but might develop into a bit more.
    As soon as I saw the details, I thought "that's a much better package than what the Yankees paid for Montas", even though Montas was viewed as the 2nd best SP on the market after Castillo.

    I think Mahle and Montas are probably quite close in pure skills once you remove park factors. Then again, I'm viewing it from a fantasy lense, where the bats from the Twins hold a lot more appeal than the pitchers from the Yanks. Real world value is probably closer there too.

    But damn... I love those bats, Encarnacion-Strand and Steer. No clue what Cincy does with all their MI's. They're in Pokémon mode, collect them all. (Noelvi Marte, Elly De La Cruz, Matt McLain, Edwin Arroyo, and now Spencer Steer)

    They become CI's and Outfielders my friend...or more trade bait. Maybe for someone to actually throw the damn ball? And what a great park to hit in for all those guys!
