Unless you plan on keeping Rasmus I would make the deal. Murphy's nothing special and you're stacked with OF.

Yes. Ellsbury should be back very soon, he'll replace your loss of Rasmus here. Going to Altuve from Murphy is a decent move.

I would do this deal... Altuve is legit and you could use the 2b help.

I wouldn'y myself.
Losing Rasmus at UT hurts more then the gain at 2B.

Get rid of Hanley
