He seems to be in the Mark Reynolds vein of hitting, but with much better defense.
I think Pedro can be a 3.5 to 4 WAR at 3B. That probably drops to 2.5 if he goes to 1B. As Scott says below, though, he’s not going anywhere this season.

Saunders seems like a smart pickup assuming the low price tag. Why not trade someone like Dan Gamache or Gift Ngoepe to get him, if possible. Same goes for Youkilis. Headley will obviously cost us something decent.

But, to turn the tables, and there was quite a bit of talk about trading him to obtain Headley, what is Pedro’s value?
