We may be coming up on the last month http://www.yadeos.com/devin-funchess-jersey-c-1_28.html of seeing Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain in a Royals uniform as both players are eligible for free agency at the end of the year. The two have been a huge part of the recent run of success, each winning an American League Championship Series MVP.
The two players were part of a huge, six-player trade with Milwaukee back in 2010, that also netted the Royals pitchers Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress in exchange for infielder Yuniesky Betancourt and former Cy Young winner Zack Greinke. With their service with the Royals possibly coming to an end, I wanted to evaluate how great this trade was in terms of the haul the Royals got for an established player in his prime.
I went back and looked at all trades of established players for prospects from 2000-2014 (more recent trades likely havent produced much fruit yet). For these purposes I only looked at trades that sent one or two veterans (three years or more) in exchange for prospects or young players (less than three years of service). I am not looking at challengetrades where two young players are swapped, or when two veterans are traded for each other.
I examined the values for the young players in the seasons before they would have become eligible for free agency or were released, and did http://www.firestormkennel.com/alfred-blue-jersey-c-1_12.html not include the values of any veterans included in the deal. I gave no consideration to if a prospect was later traded, or what they were traded for. I gave no consideration to what was given up. I simply wanted to know how much value a team got from its package of prospects had they kept all of them through their reserve years. Here are the top ten prospect hauls from trades since 2000.
