This is a valid point, but the fact remains that Bautista is the only 50 HR threat in the game today, and the potential for a 45 HR/130 RBI season with strong secondary numbers is too much to pass up. It's not an easy deal to pass up, but you have to hold onto Bautista.
I struggled more than those above me have with this trade. I think that it's pretty close after your factor in the injury. The conservative approach would be to accept the trade. You basically know what you're going to get out of Cueto & Beltre. Conservative lands you in 2nd place though. Shoot for the moon and keep Bautista.
