Both players we gave up will pitch in the majors. Sisk this year and Cruz in 2-3 years(6'7"...he will figure out the strike zone in a few years.) Everyone will be complaining about why this guy is getting playing time when Walner, Larnach, etc should be playing. Heck...this guy makes Gordon look like a stud! Your viewpoint doesn't reconcile with the numbers. In 2022, Taylor had the second highest WAR (3.2) on KCR, much better than Gordon's 1.4 WAR. Taylor would have slotted in at 4th best on the Twins. I for one am looking forward to not shuddering over the shoddy defensive play all around the field. Would you not agree that Taylor is a vast improvement, defensively AND offensively, over Celestino, Garlick, Cave, and Contreras? Gordon still gets his playing time, just not against LHP. Both Sisk and Cruz have serious and longstanding command issues that make me skeptical that they'll be fixed. Neither are exactly spring chickens or new to those efforts.
