Ayala, Lindstrom, and Gregg will be free agents and will probably move on. Jim Johnson should have his highest trade value if they think they can replace him with close to equal performance. Strop, Patton, and O'Day should be considered keepers and we control them rather inexpensively for years to come.
We also have some options is AAA. Steve Johnson's role is yet to be defined. So is Wada's; and that's before you begin the discussion on what to do with Arrieta, Matusz, and Hunter. Miguel Gonzalez and Stu Pomeranz have proven they can be successful at the ML level, too. It's a good problem to have.
All of that is long way of saying that if I was going to trade any part of our bullpen this winter it would JJ.
I have also posted previously that I would trade Hardy and try to acquire Headley. I see that as the best long term plan for both offense and defense.
