Sabathia Compensation Situation

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer details an interesting arrangement between the Brewers and Indians regarding the player to be named later in the C.C. Sabathia trade (hat tip to Anthony Castrovince).  Hoynes says the Indians get to choose the player if the Brewers make the playoffs; otherwise, the Brewers choose.  The Brewers have roughly a 70-80% chance of making the playoffs, according to Baseball Prospectus.

Hoynes says the candidates include four possible players, with outfielder Michael Brantley and third baseman Taylor Green among them.  Baseball America had Green ranked ahead of Brantley heading into the season, but it seems pretty close.
