Giolito is viewed as one of the top pitching prospects in the game, even after a rough initial trial in the majors. Lopez is a power-armed right-hander who struck out 126 in 109 1/3 innings in the upper minors in 2016 and 42 in 44 innings with the Nationals. In return, the Nationals get five years of team control over Eaton at extremely team-friendly rates. If Eaton's 2020 and 2021 team options are exercised, the Nationals will end up paying $38. 4 million for Eaton's ages 28-32 seasons. Compare that to the recent contracts given to free-agent outfielders Dexter Fowler (five years, $82. 5 million) and Ian Desmond (five years, $70 million), who are both older than and not as good as Eaton. Why did so many hate the trade for the Nationals. In part, it's because young players are so valuable due to their low salaries. In this case, however, it was mostly about Giolito's potential to develop into a Cy Young contender and Lopez's potential to develop into a rotation anchor. Here's what's interesting, however: This trade wasn't so shocking in one aspect, as teams appear more willing than ever to deal their top prospects. com's current top 20 prospects have been traded:. Yoan Moncada (Red Sox to White Sox). Giolito (Nationals to White Sox). Anderson Espinoza (Red Sox to Padres). com usually reconfigures its list in late January, so maybe the order will change a bit and a couple of these guys will drop out of the top 20, but you get the idea: Prospects are hot currency these days, and teams are willing to deal that currency. Are front offices doing the right thing. I think so. Teams know their players better than anyone else. You can scout the player and analyze the statistics, but there is much that goes unseen outside the lines. The track record of teams trading away highly rated prospects is actually very good for the team and very poor for the players traded. I went back and looked through Baseball America's archive of top 100 prospects. You can get the all-time year-by-year rankings here. I picked a few years and separated the top 25 prospects into "kept" and "traded," with traded meaning the player was moved before he established himself in the major leagues. This is just a sample of four years, but it serves as a reasonable proxy in lieu of a more in-depth study. Odds are, however, that the Nationals will win this trade. I'd bet on GM Mike Rizzo and his staff making the correct evaluation on Giolito and Lopez over the industry's evaluation. The takeaway here is not that teams should always trade their prospects but that they should know which prospects to trade, and history suggests front offices are pretty good at evaluating their own prospects. That's why I have suggested that front offices have to be bold, as Rizzo just was for the Nationals. You're more likely to find a future star in a hidden gem such as Donaldson or Zobrist or Quintana or Hendricks than you are to acquire one via trading for a prized prospect. Of course, it's possible the White Sox just acquired the next Syndergaard and Wainwright. If that's the case, the Nationals will regret the trade -- unless, of course, Eaton helps deliver a World Series title.
