Austin Hedges
Cory Spangenberg
George Springer
Miguel Sano
Alen Hanson
Brian Goodwin
Trevor Story
Trevor Bauer
Dan Straily
Hak Ju Lee
Mike Olt
Jorge Bonaficio
Joey Gallo
Yordano Ventura
Carlos Martines
Bruce Rondon
Jonathon Singleton

If possible, please rank in order , otherwise just pick 8. Thanks for your help. 5 of these players (Olt,Lee,Martines,Rondon, Singleton) I am looking at in trade , of the players I currently have I'm keeping:

Sano, Gallo, Bauer, Straily, Hanson, Goodwin, Springer, and ??

I have Greinke who I cannot keep but can trade so am deciding if it is worth it to dump him for either ROndon/Singleton or two of the Lee/Olt/Martinez trio.

Interesting, Story and Ventura I hadn't thought of as serious contenders for those spots. Gallo I thought of as a must keep, same with Carlos Martinez. So...why Ventura/Story over Gallo/Martinez? And thank you for the response.

For Sure:

George Springer- could develop immense power along with a defensive game that sticks in the Bigs
Trevor Bauer- pedigree alone
Mike Olt- He's going to be starting soon for somebody
Straily- Already here
Sano- Beastly (maybe of course)

Next:
I'd double up on the SS
Love Hansen and he will be underrated coming into Pitt with no one blocking his way
Story- real deal and O'Dowd has to see rebuild soon. Which means this could be the guy displacing Tulo in Coors

Last:
I'd choose between Singleton and Martinez. I like Martinez much better than Ventura. But the Cards do have a TON of arms and who knows what is going to happen.

I'd go Singleton over Gallo. Gallo seems so far away and people seem to be souring on him. His defense is attrocious meaning he isn't beating out Beltre or Olt for the job. Maybe he shifts to first where the value is much lower. To me Gallo had DH only written all over him, if he even makes the bigs.

Thanks for the help on mine!

Sano is the best imo.
No love for Rondon?
He is nasty, and will close soon.

Gallo is kind of ways away. A lot could happen between now and then. I would lean toward Springer over him. Love the rest of your list.
