The 2017 season has shown us exactly the kind of player Jose Iglesias is—in case you had any doubts before.
What’s more Iglesias also ranks in the top 10 among all position players in UZR/150 (seventh) and DRS (11th).
With 33 extra-base hits to his name this season and another season of controllability following the 2017 campaign, Iglesias should fetch a decent return if he’s traded.
Iglesias is arguably a better overall player than all four.
Like Shane Greene, Wilson is an effective reliever who is controllable for the foreseeable future.
The 30-year-old still has two years left on his contract and has posted a FIP below 4.00 in each of his Major League seasons.
Wilson doesn’t miss as many bats as Greene does, but he still records outs on a consistent basis.
A potential sixth or seventh inning option for a contender, the right-hander can pitch more than inning if need be.
Controllable for two more seasons via arbitration and just 25, there’s a chance the Detroit Tigers could keep Nicholas Castellanos around, especially if his transition to outfield works out well from a defensive standpoint.
Castellanos’ bat should be play anywhere, especially if he can rediscover his 2016 form (.827 OPS, 119 wRC+, .212 ISO in 447 plate appearances).
That could be in Detroit, but it could also conceivably be in another city.
