Full Count » The Tyler Thornburg trade just got more expensive for Red Sox

The Red Sox announced that they were sending 18 year old middle infielder Yeison Coca to the Brewers as the player to be named later in the deal that already sent Travis Shaw, Mauricio Dubon and Josh Pennington to Milwaukee.

Don’t rush to judgment on trades, just look at the Reds | FOX Sports

Really?

Jocketty, who became an executive advisor with the Reds in December with Dick Williams taking over as GM, said that in 22 years as a lead executive he learned the value of patience and persistence. He credits a variety of scouts and assistants when discussing his trades — Marty Maier and Mike Squires liked Suarez, J Harrison was high on Duvall, Jeff Schugel pushed Schebler and Bruce Manno — the Braves’ former assistant GM — recommended Peraza.

The Chapman deal still could yield a benefit, if righty Rookie Davis develops into a back-end starter. So could the Jay Bruce trade, but to this point second baseman Dilson Herrera isn’t hitting at Triple A.

The lesson applies every July: Don’t judge trades so quickly. Things change over time.

Why this summer’s trade market could be even more intriguing than usual

In any case, this will be a different market, if only because of the new rules regarding draft-pick compensation for free agents who reject qualifying offers and sign with new clubs.

Unlike in the past, only a revenue-sharing recipient will receive a pick immediately following the first round for such a player – and only if the free agent signs a contract for a total guarantee of $50 million or more.

All other circumstances will yield lower picks, reducing the incentive for teams that are out of contention to carry players to free agency; the better returns would come in trades.

The non-waiver deadline is nearly three months away. Teams will not get serious about trades until after the amateur draft, which runs from June 12 to 14. But things will be interesting. Things always are interesting.
