Jake Meyers

While he’s still recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the 2021 ALDS, Jake Meyers is yet another possible trade piece from the Astros centerfield core. It will depend on how he performs when he’s back and healthy so right now his value is limited at best.

His numbers from 2021 are quite similar to Chas McCormick’s though in a smaller sample size. It is important to note that he won the starting center field job when it came to who would man the position come October which shows the Astros belief in his major league potential.

What value he can bring back is a little more questionable at the moment as he has to prove he can return to form coming off his injury so right now he is not viable as a trade option, or at least not an attractive one.

It will be important for him to bounce back in a big way to extract the most value out of him from another team should the Astros choose to move him among their three center field options.

Now on to the big pieces in the starting rotation.
