I suspect the Crew will be some kind of buyer this year.
I have long had infatuations with second basemen, and my feelings for Keston Huira no different.
Keston Hiura got off to a 12-65 start in April while DHing only and continuing to rehab his arm. Since then he’s hit .382/.441/.623 in 211 PA as a 21-year-old split between High-A and Double-A while ramping up to a regular load at second. Dude is an absolute monster prospect.— Jarrett Seidler (@jaseidler) June 15, 2018
So, would I trade him, Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peralta for Jacob Degrom? In a second. You can even throw in Corey Ray or Bret Phillips. You can even have Zach Davies if that helps.
That being said, the Mets suck as trading partners (even when it works out awesome, like the failed Wheeler/Flores trade). I still want a hammer in the rotation. I think Stearns has the BFI to make it work.
