With David DeJesus now done for the year with a thumb injury, the focus as the MLB trade deadline gets closer turns to Jose Guillen, Scott Podsednik and Kyle Farnsworth.
All three players have had somewhat significant buzz surround them in the trade season. None will get draw the attention (or prospects) DeJesus would but teams are still interested.
Gulilen is probably the best trade chip out of that group, as a scout tells Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.
“Guillen has done it (and stayed healthy) for almost four months now,” another scout said. “So there’s no reason to think he can’t go for another two months. He’s not a three-four-five guy, but lower in the lineup, say sixth or seventh, he could be a real plus.”
Guillen has been injured on and off throughout his career so hoping he can stay healthy the final two months? Do so at your work risk.
Same goes with Farnsworth. He's playing some of the best ball of his career and someone's going to convince themselves that's not an anomaly and they can be the ones that pull of a great trade.
