Deal: Cincinnati receives OF Shin-Soo Choo and IF Jason Donald; Cleveland receives OF Drew Stubbs, RHP Trevor Bauer, RHP Matt Albers and RHP Bryan Shaw; Arizona receives SS Didi Gregorius, 1B Lars Anderson and LHP Tony Sipp
The Cincinnati Reds were already the favorites in the National League Central before they made this deal. Without giving up too much talent, the Reds were able to bring in Shin-Soo Choo to improve their outfield.
With the Reds trying to win the World Series this season, Choo is the type of impact player they were looking for.
Cincinnati Reds Grade: A
Making this trade a three-team deal was a great decision for the Cleveland Indians. They were able to pick up Trevor Bauer from the Arizona Diamondbacks, who may end up being the best player involved in this trade.
In addition to Bauer, the Indians picked up Drew Stubbs, a player that can benefit from a change of scenery, as well as two relievers.
Cleveland Indians Grade: A+
What where the Arizona Diamondbacks thinking with this trade? While the team was down on Trevor Bauer, they certainly could have gotten more in return for the young pitcher.
Didi Gregorius has been known for his glove work, but he is a light-hitting shortstop. Since the Diamondbacks were already talking with the Cleveland Indians, they should have pushed for Asdrubal Cabrera. This move is certainly a head-scratcher.
Arizona Diamondbacks Grade: F
