Now he's hurt beyond the trade deadline, meaning we can only trade him during the off-season, when he's a one year player and not likely to fetch anything. The only reason you don't trade him and his injury history before this point is if you think we're competing. And if that's the case, then chalk it up to yet another instance Hahn has shown utter incompetence in the GM role.
What world do you live in where teams routinely trade top prospects in May but not in the offseason?
