He certainly wouldn't cost Schwarber or Happ.
The problem though, in figuring out potential landing spots for a Schwarber, is aligning his clock, with the acquiring teams clock. Kyle only has 3 years of control himself. So, a team like Detroit probably has little to no interest in him honestly, because their window isn't current or maybe not even for another couple of years......
I think that IF Schwarber gets dealt, it's to Tampa, Oakland, Seattle, Minnesota, Angels, or Texas...... 1) I think they'd trade him to an AL team to maximize value and 2) To a team that figures to think of themselves as competitive now and that may not want or have the funds to spend huge currently.
Castellanos should be a reasonable resign, if he mashes, due to his defensive value heading into next year.
Agreed on not needing Schwarber/Happ to land Castellanos but also looking for cheap power pitching
Schwarber, like Castellanos except LH with the struggles that naturally come with that, as a bat first corner OF tops should be a relatively reasonable extension candidate. A team trading for him is probably hoping to max his offense and health by reducing defensive responsibilities, some pretty much any AL team would have some interest. I like the match with the Jays, who would probably love to slot him between Bichette and Vlad Jrs in a near future lineup
