Trevor Bauer Traded To Reds In Blockbuster Deal

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Trevor Bauer was traded to the Reds as part of a three-team deal between the Reds, Indians and Padres yesterday. The Reds acquired Bauer, the Padres acquired Taylor Trammell (the Reds #1 overall prospect), and the Indians acquired Franmil Reyes, Logan Allen, Yasiel Puig, Scott Moss, and Victor Nova. This seems like a good deal for all three teams involved, they all get what they were looking for and give up players that they deemed expendable. The Reds get their ace, the Padres get their possible superstar for a couple lower leverage prospects and the Indians get their big haul with Major League ready players, as well as prospects.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Trevor Bauer to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 6.78 projected fantasy points puts him at #81 behind Merrill Kelly and ahead of Dereck Rodriguez. He has averaged 3.59 fantasy points in his past 55 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 0.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#89) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #12 most highly owned starting pitcher. Trevor Bauer is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #44 fantasy position rank.
