Is it 2 years of Kim or 4? He’s got two left on his current deal, but that would only be 4 years of service time, so wouldn’t there be 2 arb years left? Spotrac has him as a UFA in 2027."3 others" is doing an awful lot of work here. I guess we can assume it's 3 guys less valuable than Houck, but how much less?
Even if it's zero others, I'm not sure how I feel about giving up 5 years of Houck for 2 of Kim to help a .500-ish team. Alhough Fangraphs projects him to have a wRC+ or 106, which is actually higher than last year. So...maybe?
