I know how this went down... Kim Ng called the DBacks asking if they could get back the HOF pitcher that Mike Hill traded to Arizona last year, in a hurry Kim just said "That pitcher, Zach something..." and the DBacks sent over Zach Pop instead of Zac Gallen.

So, serious question now, in a deal like this, is this one of those prearranged trades where the Marlins told the Dbacks to draft Pop to complete this trade? Or did the Dbacks draft Pop without the Marlins knowledge and then the Marlins came calling for the trade? I'm pretty sure this is a Marlins-led draft pick that Arizona just facilitates for them to complete this trade. Not sure why Arizona would waste a draft pick here but we shall see.

Yeah this is totally the rule 5 version of the Eli Manning draft and trade lol

Could this garner more for Arizona?  Wouldn't they get a player with higher value than a rule 5 player?

Not necessarily. Could be a low minors player that we gave up.

Yeah and that’s probably the trade off for being able to have the option to keep the player down in the minors while they develop instead of being forced to use a roster spot on the Rule 5 guy
