The Cleveland Indians traded OF Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Dec. 11, and they acquired SP Trevor Bauer from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the three-team trade. The Reds also added INF Jason Donald from the Indians, while sending minor-league SS Didi Gregorius to the Diamondbacks. The Indians sent RP Tony Sipp and 1B Lars Anderson to Arizona, and added RP Matt Albers and P Bryan Shaw.
Fantasy Tip: Choo moving to the Reds is a tremendous boon for his fantasy value. He has five-tool ability, and can be a great add early on draft day in NL-only formats, and mixed leaguers will certainly want to target him in the early to middle rounds. He'll be a consistent source of runs scored in a more potent lineup.
Bauer is the key piece for the Indians, as they get a potential cornerstone pitcher. He will be a great addition to their rotation, but keep in mind he might struggle for victories with a lineup that isn't looking too potent. In mixed leagues, he'll certainly be worth an add in the middle to late rounds for his potential, and he remains a must-have in long-term keeper formats.
