The Milwaukee Brewers made one significant move during the W

Is the lefty worth the compensation pick?"r Meetings: acquiring Alex Claudio from the Texas Rangers for their Competitive Round A draft pick , 40th overall in the 2019 MLB First Year Player Draft. The trade brings Major League Baseball to rarely traveled territory by sending a big league player for a draft pick. So, what does the cost actually come out to?Those who’ve followed my work on this website and social media know this trade was a downer for me. The draft is fun, I love to follow the minor leagues, and it takes a huge draft tool away from David Stearns and company in the form of a high pick and, perhaps more importantly, the bonus slot money that comes with it. So, I asked that I have the opportunity to break down the cost of the trade to see if my initial disappointment was correct, or if this is actually a deal to be excited about.Claudio is a valuable, but unremarkable major league reliever. He has a career ERA of 3.20 in 230.2 IP. He’s not a strikeout specialist, whiffing just 6.2 per 9 innings. Meanwhile, he does control the ball well enough to limit walks Tyler Clippard Jersey , as shown by his 1.9 career BB/9. His career looked substantially better before a rough performance last season, but I’m always willing to give some flexibility in performance to young pitchers used inconsistently.The benefits for Milwaukee go beyond Claudio’s potential performance. He’s a reliever who was regularly used in multi-inning appearances and has a player option remaining. This plays right into the way Craig Counsell uses his bullpen, with players bouncing between leagues as needed and going long stints when needed. AND Claudio is under team control for three more seasons.The 40th overall pick holds some different value for Milwaukee. Last year, the #40 overall pick had a slotted bonus of nearly $1.8 million. The Brewers currently pick at #28 overall for their standard draft pick, which would give them around a $2.4 million bonus based on the previous year’s total. Milwaukee would have a 75% increase on their first round pick allotment with that total. Looking historically at the success rate of the 40th overall pick, only 18 of the 54 players selected with that pick have played in the majors. Of those 18, only nine have a positive WAR according to Baseball Reference. So, just 17% of the players drafted in that round have had some value at the highest level. At a 5.2 career WAR, Claudio would be the sixth best player drafted at #40 overall.While that’s important to note, it doesn’t necessarily explain the true value for the pick. Since Stearns has taken over at GM, the team has been exceptional at using excess draft money to sign players looking for a big payday in later rounds. Those players include Tristen Lutz , Chad McClanahan, Je’Von Ward, Max Lazar, and Nick Egnatuk. Only one is currently ranked as a substantial prospect in the org, but most of the players are young and can still develop into something special.Although that pick would have given the Brewers more draft flexibility, the more I look into it, the Brewers don’t really need that cap space. They are good at getting value from the draft and still signing players to under-slot contracts that create the draft flexibility. Although there is a chance that Milwaukee could end up getting a substantially better player than Claudio, it’s incredibly unlikely. If the Brewers wanted to sign a reliever like Claudio to the team, they’d likely be spending at least $5 million on the open market. Instead, they get three years of arbitration control, a non-guaranteed contract Yuli Gurriel Jersey , flexibility to move him up and down from the majors to minors as they see fit, and youth. When you start looking at it, it was truly a no-brainer for the team, who had a need for another left-handed reliever to pair with Josh Hader.While I always would rather have another prospect to analyze and, potentially, interview, Stearns made a great move, proving why I’m just some guy writing about his players and he’s the one running the show.Statistics courtesy of Baseball-Reference JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Dan Straily was released Monday by the Miami Marlins, who will give the pitcher $1,209 Jake Marisnick Jersey ,677 in termination pay rather than his $5 million salary.The 30-year old right-hander was 15-15 in two seasons with the Marlins, who acquired him from Cincinnati in January 2017. He was limited to 23 starts last year, when he went on the disabled list twice because of forearm and oblique strains.Straily had a 5.94 ERA over 16 2/3 innings in five spring training appearances.All five members of the Marlins starting rotation are 27 and younger.“We’re going to be built with our starting pitching,” Miami president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Monday. “These guys are part of our future and we want to give them every opportunity to continue to grow and to get better, help us win ballgames.”Straily is 42-36 with a 4.23 ERA in seven major league seasons.The Marlins saw improvement in the breaking balls of Trevor Richards and Pablo Lopez, a better delivery from Sandy Alcantara and a healthy Caleb Smith.“We have five starters that we really like,” Hill said. “We have depth at Triple A that we really like and Double-A and High A.”Miami is sending Wei-Yin Chen to the bullpen. Manager Don Mattingly said Chen will be able to make some spot start, if needed.
