Here’s a look back at MLBTR’s original analysis and reporting over the past seven days:
- Before the Mets acquired James Loney on Saturday to take the place of the injured Lucas Duda, Jeff Todd combed through a host of possible outside acquisitions to fill in at first base for the club. Jeff wrote that Loney “might be the most obvious and realistic target.”
- With the season having passed the quarter mark, I examined seven trade candidates whose stock has dropped for performance- or injury-related reasons (or, in some cases, both).
- Athletics left-hander Rich Hill is another potential trade chip, but unlike the aforementioned septet, his value is soaring. I looked at some of the numbers behind his success and ran down several pitching-needy playoff contenders that could try to acquire the 36-year-old this summer.
