Futures Game

Three Position Player’s from the Future’s Game I’d Trade while they still have Value….

Dominic Smith (NY Mets) Willie Cahoun (LA Dodgers) Dansby Swanson (Atlanta Braves)

Dominic Smith

Same swing I saw in HS…..Poor lower half, linear upper….bat is slower, bad body….

Not a long term solution at 1b if Mets have championship aspirations down the road….I just don’t see him been a viable contributor….. I’d trade while still have some value

Willie Cahoun

Love the bat, it’ll play on MLB grass but his deficiencies on defense will be exposed over the long haul and limit him….don’t see long term fit w/ Dodgers….. limited range and length w/ stiff hands/slow transfer on DP, will have MLB Pitchers/Mangers  cringing…..could see him playing everyday on non-contending team going thru transition phase

Dansby Swanson

I see a utility/role player with versatility…. might handle an everyday role though more likely to excel w/ lesser exposure and pressure…..didn’t see a stand out tool….poor hip rotation, looks to cheat on inside pitches and gets exposed when wrong….
