With shark likely to be traded, the amount of teams that could be interested in him are slowly dying down, even though it is just spring training. A team that has been somewhat involved in rumors:the pirates. The NL central seems to be weaker this year and without much to brag about over the past 20 years, Pittsburgh could make a nice run with a TOR pitcher.
Now, the Cubs lack pitching and left handed hitting prospects and the Pirates have 2 of those. I'm thinking of a trade of:
Pirates Get: Shark and Soler
Cubs Get:Taillon, Polanco and 1 of Glasnow, Kingham or Heredia.
This would give the Pirates a TOR arm to go with a young Cole and Liriano, along with a nice top prospect in Soler that is a year or 2 away.
The Cubs would get a nice TOR prospect along with a nice lefty bat in the outfield that is comparable, but a little better and more polished than Soler, along with another good pitching prospect.
Of course i'm just thinking off the top of my head with fun trade ideas, and even if it was proposed its not often divisional trades happen, but would this be a fair trade?
