    Who is the second prospect? I only see Jose Salas, a MI who was Miami&#39;s 4th or 5th best prospect. I love this deal for Miami. Lopez even when he finally made it thru a season healthy was not very good after April last year. There isnt a single hitter in the Miami lineup who could put ball on bat and actually get on base consistently. This is totally worth it.</p>

    ETA - second prospect is 17-year-old Byron Chourio</p>

    Kim Ng just said in the press conference that Arraez will play 2B and they are going to try Jazz in CF. Wow.

    They traded for a moderately good 2B to move their franchise position player to CF?

    They traded from a perceived position of strength to acquire the type of bat they want, and then figured out how to get it in their lineup.
    One can question targeting an Arraez type bat, but moving Chisholm was the effect, not cause.

    Arraez get hurt, a lot, ans shifting him to 1st was one way to mitigate the risk. Playing him at 2nd might not be the best idea, but we'll see. He's a slappy, but man, he can handle the bat like a wand. Nice guy too, I wish him nothing but the best.
    And getting a middle of the rotation starter is always good thing...maybe they'll go with a 6 man rotation to easy the risk.

    I phrased it wrong. I didn’t think they acquired him in order to move Chisolm, but instead I find it bothersome that they would acquire a lesser player which resulted in them changing the position of a more valuable player.
