These players would be nice compliments to any deal and perhaps just missed the list, but would still hold some value in trade discussions:
1. Roberto Campos
Campos was a bit of a mystery man for the Detroit Tigers before his signing--while he shows the ability to barrel the ball and has some strike zone awareness, many have wondered where the power is--just five home runs in 112 games for Lakeland in 2022.
2. Ty Madden
The compensatory pick in 2021 had an excellent debut season in pro ball--a 3.01 ERA while striking out 133 in 122.2 innings between West Michigan and Erie. He lights up radar guns, hitting 99 several times throughout the season, too. He's arguably the most valuable of this bunch.
3. Izaac Pacheco
2022 was a bit of a mixed bag for Pacheco--playing well for Lakeland and then struggling following a brief promotion to West Michigan. Still, his 3 home runs in just 18 games in High-A and his age (20) make him an intriguing option to opposing clubs.
4. Reese Olson
Strikeouts, anyone? Reese Olson was a strikeout machine for the Erie Seawolves in 2022--stockpiling 168 punchouts in just 119 innings of work. Many feel Olson is ultimately destined for a relief role at the highest levels, but he'll get every chance to prove he can't start until then.
5. Jace Jung
It's a small 30-game sample, but early reports on the former first round pick were a bit uninspiring for a 12th overall selection in the 2022 draft. Jung, however, was coming off a year in which he hit .335 for Texas Tech and could be a nice pick up for a team that feels they can improve upon his short .232/.373/.333 line in pro ball.
