Spanberger really isn't much of a prospect. He's one of 50 guys that every organization has that maybe could possibly figure it out one year and turn into a legitimate MLB prospect but has a greater shot of just being organizational filler.

With that said, we were just going to let Chase walk anyway, so something is better than nothing, plus we avoid paying the buyout. Solid deal for the Jays also, they at the very worst reasonably fill a rotation spot with a guy who will be a #4-#5 at worst and have an extra option year on him if he turns into more.

Good deal for Chase too. He just guaranteed himself another 8.5M and most likely will just be left alone in the Jays rotation. No one who should really be unhappy with this.

Exactly! Chase Anderson is getting 9.3 million dollars minimum (8.5 million salary in 2020, 350 k trade bonus and at a minimum 500k buyout of 2021 option. That is substantially more than he reasonably could’ve expected had the Brewers declined his option. Additionally that he goes into the Toronto rotation and will be leaned on to put up innings is likely a better situation than shifting between the pen and rotation and getting pulled after 4 innings.

In addition, not only do they avoid paying a million dollars to drop Anderson they actually got something in return. A nice trade for Milwaukee

I agree. That they didn't do the same thing with Thames tells me that either they are interested in bringing him back, or that the rest of the league viewed his option as too expensive. I would not be surprised to see Thames sign a 2-year deal for something in the neighborhood of $9-$10 million. It's a tough time for him to be a free agent with a market somewhat saturated with corner power bats with similar profiles.

Another role for The Sandlot that needs to be re-cast.
