Yep, I agree with this. If they think he's going to drop off, it would make sense to try to trade him to a team that doesn't feel that way. I think he was playing hurt in 2018, so his poor year doesn't worry me too much, but Sig would know better than I would.
I think Trey is a 2-2.5 win player where he puts up an 780-825 OPS in any given year.
He has value. He’s a good player.
But he’s not a core guy. He’s more of a #6 hitter who doesn’t give you a ton of value outside of his hit tool.
I wouldn’t want to pay that player 10M a year unless he was 22 years old and still had room to grow.
