After missing out on Aaron Nola and now Sonny Gray, are the Atlanta Braves turning to the trade market? They held talks with the Chicago White Sox.
Atlanta has discussed trading Dylan Sease, 28, with the Chicago White Sox, according to Bob Nightingale of USA Today.토토사이트
Sease was initially considered untradeable. He was among the four non-transferable players the White Sox announced last summer.
However, that appears to have changed. Previously, the Los Angeles Dodgers were in talks with the White Sox to trade Seager.
The fifth-year major leaguer pitched 177 innings in 33 games last season, going 7-9 with a 4.58 ERA. He struck out 214 batters.
Although his numbers were down significantly from last year’s 2.20 ERA, he still has the ability to strike out a ton of batters. What hasn’t dropped is his command.
As a result, Sizemore has been recognized for his ability to return to top form at any given time. Last year, he finished second in the American League Cy Young Award.
His problem is his velocity. He struck out 78 batters last year and 79 last season. This is considered his biggest weakness.
Cishek is eligible for free agency after the 2025 season. With two more years of service time, a trade for him would be very costly.
Atlanta’s farm system is not in great shape. They already have most of their major league call-ups. It’s doubtful that the Chicago White Sox have any prospects that would appeal to them.
After missing out on both Nola and Gray in free agency, it will be interesting to see if Atlanta can bolster its starting rotation with the Sears trade.
If Atlanta were to acquire Sease, he could form a K-machine duo with Spencer Strider, who has become the major league’s version of Dr. K.
Sure, they lost Nola and Gray, but they still have Jordan Montgomery. So, Atlanta’s bolstering of the starting rotation will have to wait a bit longer.
