A recap of the original analysis MLBTR offered over the past week:
- Trade Rumors announced the acquisition of Roster Resources on Monday and is pleased to have added RR’s founder, Jason Martinez, to the staff. In his first piece with MLBTR, Jason debuted his “Knocking Down the Door” series – which focuses on Double-A and Triple-A prospects who are making cases to receive major league promotions.
- In the third installment of his weekly top trade candidate series, Jeff Todd analyzed 15 players who could be on the move in the coming weeks.
- With the White Sox having taken several steps back since a red-hot start, Jeff looked into whether it would make sense for the team to continue acquiring outside pieces. The White Sox have made several notable roster moves recently, as Jeff highlighted, with the trade for struggling right-hander James Shields being the biggest.
- Lastly, Jeff checked in on the performances of a slew of players whose teams will have offseason decisions to make on their club options. Some household names include Jay Bruce, Wade Davis, Gio Gonzalez, Matt Holliday and Jonathan Lucroy.
