Your point scores, that most of De Aza's value to the receiving team lies in whatever marginal upgrade he provides for the rest of the season, playoffs.

Note for further research (no links): Quintana has a great F-Strike% at least partly because no one offers at his first pitches.

For any team to retain the rights to their arbitration eligible players, they have to offer a contract with a dollar amount of at least 85% of the expiring contract.

In the off-season, pay De Aza within the arb range to sign him. Sign him.

Not that it would excuse Eaton's poor field awareness either way, but yesterday at the Cell (1:30 CDT in early August) where would the sun have been in the sky? Would it have been about where Eaton was tracking Rosales' home run ball?
