Highest Trade Value

Sports Illustrated’s MLB players with the highest trade value, according to Jonah Keri. Ratings include not only the players performance and ability but also the player’s age, injury history, salary, and years left on his contract – factors most fans fail to consider.
Given Atlanta’s recent active trading history you wouldn’t expect any Braves on the list, and there aren’t. No Yankees or Padres, or Cardinals. But does Keri allow the flavor of the month teams more leeway? Sure appears that way, with five Cubs and four Astros. In fact good hit no field Cub OF/C Kyle Schwarber seems destined to become an AL DH, much like former Brave Evan Gaddis.
