Rangers should consider trading Beltre - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN

It’s official: Yu Darvish will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss all of 2015. It’s a big loss for both the Rangers and for fans; if you didn’t enjoy watching Darvish pitch, you don’t like baseball. As we awaited news of his fate the past few days, I wondered if this worst-case scenario would mean that Rangers general manager Jon Daniels would consider trading Adrian Beltre. Joe Sheehan suggested the same thing Thursday in his newsletter:

“The next challenge for Daniels will be a painful one—exploring trade possibilities for Beltre, a free agent after 2016 who could make a difference right now to a dozen teams. Beltre has limited no-trade protection, and would gain full veto rights after the 2015 season as a 10-and-five player. If the Rangers don’t rip through April, they have to explore the market for Beltre. At 2/34 for a four-win player, Beltre would have no shortage of suitors. Picture the Nationals with Beltre at third and Anthony Rendon back at second, or the Pirates with Beltre at third and Josh Harrison back in a utility role. If the Rangers aren’t going to win this year—the Rangers aren’t going to win this year—they need to trade Beltre. This is a .500 team in a division and a league where that simply won’t be good enough.”
