There have been some trade rumors regarding Javier Vazquez over the past month or so (h/t MLBTR), and given my fascination with the guy, I thought I should chime in on these.
If he is traded, he'd likely still be a top fantasy option, though his park is more favorable than most in many regards. Strikeouts are boosted 3.9 percent, BABIP is suppressed by at least 4 percent, and HRs are suppressed by 0.9 percent (though BBs are boosted and GBs are suppressed by about 1.5 percent each). Overall, Turner Field only suppressed run scoring by 0.4 percent, so a move could end up being beneficial for Vazquez if he stays within the National League, especially if he finds himself with a better offense going to bat for him and a better defense behind him (the Braves are 22nd in run scoring and 28th in UZR/150 this season).
