2.) Who, if any pitchers, would you be willing to trade Jo Adell for?

Mark: Syndergaard absolutely. I would also possibly be willing to part with Adell in a one-for-one deal for Trevor Bauer.

David Rice: I would not trade Jo Adell period.  Unless it was for two strong controllable arms in the deal.  However, I don’t know if it’s possible to do that. Point being while I don’t think Jo Adell is the second coming of Mike Trout, but I think he is too important to get rid of, especially for just making the playoffs.  Even with another good arm we are not a World Series team and especially for a wild-card spot that could be only one-game.

Vincent Page (@VincentPage74): My stance on Jo Adell is that I would try to make any trade without him, and if I was Billy Eppler, I would not trade him. However, given the state of the rotation and names available across the MLB, I would not be too heartbroken if he was dealt. The Angels have enough names on paper to make deals without their top prospect, but if they get caught in bidding wars, the idea of trading Adell becomes much more likely. And, to an extent, it makes some sense given the current landscape of the Angels’ organization.

David Peng: No one. Jo Adell is untouchable.
