Have been offered 4 top prospects for Jose; in a rebuilding mode so considering this.

Get - Eric Hosmer, Rubby De La Rosa, Jarrod Parker, Eric Castellanos

Give - Jose Bautista

We have a 15 man farm team system, so Parker and Castellanos would be placed there. But would have to cut 2 the players I already have:

1. Christian Yelich - 1B - FLA
2. Bryce Brentz - OF - BOS
3. Kellin Deglan - C - TEX
4. Carlos Peguero - OF - SEA -- probable cut
5. Lorenzo Cain - OF - KC
6. Nester Molina - SP - TOR
7. David Phelps - SP - NYY
8. Todd Redman - SP - ATL
9. Adeinys Hechevarria - SS - TOR
10. Paul Goldschmidt - 1B - ARI
11. Aaron J Sanchez - SP - TOR
12. Anthony Gose - OF - TOR
13. Zachary Wheeler - SP - SF
14. Jake McGee - RP - TB
15. Kentrail Davis - OF - MIL -- probable cut

Main Roster:
C - J.P. Arencibia
1B - Mitch Morland
2B - Chase Utley
3B - Neil Walker
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Jose Bautista, Nick Schierholtz, Eric Thames
UTIL - Adam Dunn, Jesus Guzman
DL - Carlos Gonzalez, Allen Craig, Alex Rodriguez, Grady Sizemore

SP - Ricky Romero, Alexi Ogando, Rick Porcello, Shaun Marcum, Joe Saunders, Javier Vazquez(drop), Jeff Karstens, Kyle Drabek

Here is why I like this. Bautista is past the MLB prime. The others obviously aren't and Hosmer seems to be the real deal. Here is why I don't like this deal. Power can be hard to come by, especially when it comes with average. I don't think Hosmer ever bashes like Bautista. I honestly don't know enough about the other prospects to help out much though.

Well you are receiving two top 50 MLB Prospects and a very good pitcher with amazing strikeout numbers in Rubby De La Rosa, so that's a very good start. But Bautista is one of the most valuable assets in fantasy right now, I would hold off and try to see if you can get a little more in return. If you don't do this I think you would just be selling yourself short, because as the trading deadline gets closer people will usually become more desperate.
