William Contreras is an MVP candidate picked up in trade, with Willy Adames, Joey Ortiz, and Oliver Dunn also products of swaps.

Blake Perkins was a free-talent add who had been let go by his third organization when the Brewers signed him in 2022, and while Gary Sanchez is more famous, he’s playing for just $3 million himself, practically free.
