Passan: Indians did 'extraordinarily well' in Bauer deal (1:37)

Jeff Passan analyzes the Indians' trade that sent Trevor Bauer to the Reds and says Cleveland has enough arms on the shelf to make up for Bauer's departure. (1:37)

Trevor Bauer's last moments in a Cleveland Indians uniform won't soon be forgotten, as he's now on the move to Cincinnati in a strange three-team deal in which the side I like the most belongs to the team that didn't get a major leaguer in return.

The San Diego Padres look like the biggest winners here, though that's assuming Taylor Trammell is the player we saw the past two years and not the guy who has had a disappointing season as a 21-year-old in Double-A this year. Trammell was the 35th overall pick in 2016 but signed well over slot and showed in his first full pro season that his approach at the plate was far more advanced than the typical two-sport high school player's.
