Larnach pulled this bomba just fine in Spring Training last year :

Scouting Report: Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 45, Speed: 45. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but will sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)

I remember when Musgrove was traded to the Pods, there were reports that Twins were also interested but Pirates asked for Larnach and Twins turned it down.Just a rumor but wonder what others think about wisdom of trading from area of strength in the organization for someone like Musgrove?What if Larnach could fetch a pitcher like Sonny Gray or being the top trade piece for Luis Castillo?How about one of the Dodger studs like May or Urias?Would this keep the window open longer?
Pitchers like Musgrove - at his salary - don't come along all that often. The FO obviously knows better about the players and the proposed trade terms. In general, I have no problem trading a potential star corner OF for a young, above-average SP at this point. You trade from excess for areas of need.

I want Larnach to be a big time stud just so I can laugh in Keith Law's face for not including him in his top 100.
I hope you laughed at TD for not having Arraez in their top ten the years before he came up.
