Now Arizona Diamondbacks Kole Calhoun could be headed for the Yankees
The Yankees desperately need a left-handed bat. Kole’s left handed swing could do major damage to that short right field fence. Kole can play the OF and play it well. The Arizona Diamondbacks have young guys they want to see play the OF. While it pains me to see the valley native and Dbacks fan leave, the Yankees are perfect for him. Kole is on an expiring contract with a player option for around 8 million dollars. The Yankees might turn down that option but might not. Nonetheless, here’s what I could see the Yankees doing to get Kole Calhoun:
I see the Diamondbacks including cash to get back a higher named prospect. In this case, it is the ASU alum, Trevor Hauver , the Yankees #23 prospect. He is a 2B/OF who can run, hit , and walk. He can play solid defense across multiple positions. He is in Single-A, so he wouldn’t be near the Majors to help the Yankees anytime soon. He would fit in nicely with the Diamondbacks as a utility player rising through the ranks. The Arizona Diamondbacks love versatile players with no position. Trevor fits that bill solidly.
Thank you for reading my predictions on trades that the Arizona Diamondbacks make during this Trade Deadline. I hate to see players go but at least we get new ones that we can learn to love and support just like the old ones. Til next time Venom fans,
May the Force be with You…
