This writer proposes a Yankees-Indians trade for Francisco Lindor. What do you think?

Over the next two seasons, Cleveland Indians star shortstop Francisco Lindor will likely make over $40 million through the arbitration process. That's too steep for a franchise like Cleveland, so trading their best player in Lindor is a real possibility this winter.

Who can pay that tab? The New York Yankees.

So here's what it might look like:

Yankees Receive: Francisco Lindor

Indians Receive: Miguel Andujar, Estevan Florial, Deivi Garcia, and one or two of Thairo Estrada/Clarke Schmidt/Garrett Whitlock

MLB rumor sources put Lindor's arbitration value at around 17 mill for this year and 20 for next year (not 40).
Trading him would however make some sense if it were possible to get something like comparable value in players who would be around in more than two years.
Quite unlikely. I'd say go for broke and spend medium money for some substantial fielders. Right now only 3 positions are solid, with fair to good starters an average bullpen and decent utility players. Overall, they need about four solids to have an above 50% chance at winning the (mediocre) division. Only one of Timmer's Yankee dogsbodies even qualify.

A good regular, two of the Yankees' best prospects, and a utility infielder.

Here is another permutation, offered by another writer at MLB.com:

Yankees get: SS Francisco Lindor

Indians get: 3B Miguel Andújar, OF Clint Frazier, RHP Deivi Garcia (MLB's No. 62 prospect) and RHP Albert Abreu (Yankees' No. 6 prospect)

Why it could work: Andújar and Frazier are superfluous parts for the Yanks, and Garcia is less important after the club added Gerrit Cole on a nine-year, $324 million contract. As a result, the Yankees could strongly consider parting with those three plus Abreu to bring Lindor to the Bronx -- fittingly, as another legendary Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter, is likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The addition of Lindor would allow Gleyber Torres to remain at second base and DJ LeMahieu in an everyday utility role, and the Yankees are one of the clubs with the budget to afford an extension for Lindor.

On the Indians' end, this deal would help the team to avoid a rebuild, as Andújar (controllable through 2023), Frazier (controllable through '24) and Garcia could all be significant big league contributors for Cleveland this coming season and beyond. Garcia could eventually replace Kluber in the Indians' rotation, and the Tribe could address its hole at second base by moving Ramirez to the keystone and playing Andújar at third. Meanwhile, Frazier could take over in left or right field for the team that originally selected him fifth overall in the 2013 MLB Draft, freeing up Franmil Reyes to see most of his reps as the designated hitter.
