Ankiel in 2011 had a wRC+ of 82, or 18% worse than an average hitter. Espinosa in his worst year with the bat was still at 94, 12% better thank Ankiel. Power, speed and defense makes up for his near league average offense.
And of our current starting lineup, who is the worst hitter? Espinosa. By a lot. If Rendon hadn't been hurt and had gotten time at second base, we'd all be talking about what we could get for Espinosa.
Espinosa for Bauer and, maybe, a small piece. Lombo starts the season at second, Rendon comes up in mid-season to challenge for rookie of year.
