Agent Scott Boras sees thinning out of player pool
Scott Boras said he feels because the new CBA has so many restrictions on how much teams can spend on amateur players, the teams will see a thinning out of their minor league systems. Therefore, he doesn’t expect a spike in trade activity at the trading deadline under the new playoff format which would seem to promote more trade activity given that more teams will be in the hunt. He also sees teams not spending over the luxury tax and using that money for pure profit because they won’t be able to invest it in player development.
