Hmm well slight hit to your OF...but you do have Crawford, Reddick and Braun still in tow. A huge huge void at 1b filled...push at SP. Also a nice buy low on a good UTL player in Prado.

If you can then flip Lowrie for an OF I would do this deal. Maybe go after Bruce or something to soften the blow of losing the power that J-Up would bring you. I also hate being the side that gives up the best player in the deal...but this helps your team more overall...I would do it....I honestly think that huge 1b upgrade is too good to pass up.

What you could do after this is try your damndest to flip Lowrie for power hitting OF buy low (maybe Stanton, Bruce, Holliday, Cespedes, Kubel even, Hamilton to name some buy low targets) then you'd put Prado at CI and Hanley at MI. I like that lineup more balanced.
