Analysis: They traded two top prospects and Erick Aybar, their starting shortstop for the past decade, to add Simmons to a defensive skill pool already including the wall-climbing Trout and Gold Glover Kole Calhoun. Simmons is generally considered the best defensive player in baseball, a lanky shortstop with nearly limitless range, exceptional athleticism and pitcher-grade arm strength. He leads the majors in runs saved since his debut in 2012.
