Smilin Ken Rosenthal wonders, while admitting the chances of this are slim:
The Astros need to rebuild around pitching. They’ve got right-handers Bud Norris and Jordan Lyles in place. What if they could move Pence to the Braves for a package built around one or more of Atlanta’s many appealing young arms?
They would save money. They would increase their inventory of young talent. They would kick-start a rebuilding process that is long overdue.
