I think Tulo would bring back a better piece than Jose though. You already have Cano at 2B, which means you're getting OF-like production in terms of power, at a middle infield spot. I'd keep Reyes so you have a solid SB core of Reyes/Kemp/Ellsbury.

I'd use Tulo (who usually has a hot second half, which you'll want to play up), for someone like Bautista (talk about injury concern sapping power), Longoria/SP, Granderson/SP, Holliday.

My concern is either filling that third OF spot in place of Delmon, improving upon 3B since Wright is still a question mark and Peralta is overachieving, while adding another SP if possible.

McCutchen is a good thought. I would look for some speed.

Whenever I am looking to move a player, I always look at the other teams and see who needs a SS. Then look to see what they have and make an offer. So while it is nice to try and tell you what kind of player you should trade for it is easier if you find the right team and go from there. Sometimes you can get a better player in return by finding a team that desperately wants a SS.

Anyone outside of Braun or Bautista can be had for Reyes. I might be swayed to trade him for McCutchen and a pitcher.
