Rosenthal reports that the Padres had previously contacted the D-Backs on the possibility of a trade for Inciarte and second baseman Aaron Hill earlier this year, during Spring Training.
Inciarte is currently hitting .287/.315/.372 for Arizona this season. I would actually be pretty happy about acquiring a young and talented outfielder like Inciarte. However, Rosenthal does not think the D-Backs are interested in a trade, since Inciarte is under team control until 2020. I have to agree with Rosenthal here, I don’t see the D-Backs trading away their young and controllable talent, especially to a division rival.
What do you guys think, would you want to trade for Inciarte? What would you be willing to part with for him?
