STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Now that Pirates GM Neal Huntington has committed -- in his own way -- to selling on 2019, we can now begin gauging which of his assets can net the most value. Today we'll begin by looking at the two premiere rental hitters at his disposal — Corey Dickerson and Melky Cabrera. Of course, there are others -- Francisco Cervelli and Jung Ho Kang, chiefly -- but, let's be real. The two that can bring the biggest return are who we'll be discussing.
Of course, this assumes that Dickerson is healthy enough to give teams confidence in acquiring him. Our own Dejan Kovacevic reported that Dickerson took indoor batting practice on Saturday, which is a great sign for all involved. For the purposes of this exercise, we'll consider him to be healthy enough for the PBC to confidently dangle him.
