I am perfectly fine with this move. Iglesias didn’t play much last year (health) and I have no idea what to think of the bat, which came out of nowhere. He’s a career low value guy who impressed in small samples last year.
We got two young arms in return. This is what a team building a farm system should do.

In Valaika's case he has some ML infield innings under his belt... and as long as you keep him away from SS... he's passable... And he's got enough ML at bats to know he'll hit and hit well.
In Sanchez's case... he's better than Martin
Saturn and Jupiter will align into a "Christmas Star" on December 21st. And about a week + or -. Brightest alignment of these two planets since the Middle Ages, 1226.

You are looking at this much different than me.
There are reasons why these players didn’t have those chances or played those positions.
Once again long term next year may not matter but this isn’t good to see.
