2018-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)The A's are hanging in there right now, but I highly doubt they are making a run as the season heads into summer. What are realistic returns for guys like Jed Lowrie, Blake Treinen, Matt Joyce, Jonathan Lucroy, and Khris Davis?
(John from Harrisonburg)
Man, this is tough. The four hitters you mentioned are all playing well now, same as Treinen ... but I think it all depends on perceived need by any acquiring team. Joyce probably pulls the least value of the five, in my opinion, because his role is filled by lots of other players out there on the open market. To me, he's probably a dude that pulls back a flyer-type prospect in that C+ range.

Lucroy could be a big upgrade over a team with a dire catching situation (read: the Nationals), so I could absolutely see a team dealing something from the bottom part of their Top 10 to acquire him on a short-term deal. If he punched a ball over the fence once or twice before the deadline, that'd help his cause.

Davis is an interesting case, as I think his market would be more limited to AL teams, and I think those front offices might see his low BABIP making him something of a buy-low candidate. But he's going to be very expensive in arbitration this offseason, so I'm not sure anyone would see him as a tremendous value, which will drive down his return. Maybe a Top 15 prospect in a strong system? Hard to say.

Treinen is probably the big-ticket item of this bunch, with two more years after this under inexpensive team control. A legitimate prospect could come back to the A's in exchange for his arm (and the rest of him, I guess), and probably 10-12 teams will be looking for a reliever at the deadline. I could see this deal looking like the Justin Wilson trade from the last deadline, with a Jeimer Candelario prospect coming back.

Finally, there's Lowrie. Jed! has been outrageous, and I think he remains underrated and undervalued across the board. The Indians, Cardinals, Diamondbacks, and others could be fun fits this season ... but I'd think the A's would be wise to try to pull the trigger on this deal ASAP. I think he could return a top-10 guy too, but more likely a close-to-the-majors or big-league piece that has more team control and a relatively low upside. (Bryan Grosnick)
2018-01-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark,can u rank these closers going forward and sticking there...Brach...Hand..Soria..Shane Greene...Blake Treinen,Blake Parker,Alex Claudio and Branden Morrow.. Thanks,John
(John from Boston)
Somehow I have a hard time believing the Cubs are going to roll with Morrow. I'll say Hand, Treinen, Brach, Green, Claudio, Soria, Parker (I like Parker, I just think he's better served elsewhere in that pen) (Mark Barry)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)With Stammen injured, does anyone get higher value, like potentially Blake Treinen?
(Silverback38 from VA)
maybe, but this could work the other way. Stammen was really good at keeping other guys from going for long stretches, and this could stretch out the pen. Tanner Roark seems like the guy who would get a boost. (Mike Gianella)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the upside for Blake Treinen? Could he be a solid #3?
(leites from New York)
No a solid 3 is a damn fine pitcher. I think Treinen is more four-five material. Major leaguer, but not high-impact. (Paul Sporer)
