Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox are run by former Detroit GM Dave Dombrowski, so as Tigers fans we know that means he will be aggressive and will not be holding back on any prospects. This makes the Red Sox intriguing to make trades with, but with that being said the team doesn’t have much top-end talent in its farm system as most of them are on the field in the MLB now.

They do have one player that could, like Tucker make an instant impact. Triston Casas is a power-hitting 19-year-old infielder who can play both corner positions. He has a line of .261/.347/.512 and he has hit 16 HRs and 66 RBI this season in Single-A. He can hit and he hits the ball hard, he’s someone this team simply doesn’t have and if they managed to trade for him fans should be ecstatic.
