Pitchers like him still get elite prospects. The Brewers themselves gave up elite prospects for Sabathia to Cleveland. Giants last year gave up a top prospect in Zach Wheeler for Carlos Beltran, a rental. Teix hauled in a nice package as a rental. Cliff Lee brought in a stud prospect in Smoak as a rental, as well as others.
