What did Scott Harris say about trading Joe Jimenez?

In the deal for Jimenez, the Tigers received 3B/OF Justyn-Henry Malloy and LHP Jake Higginbotham. Malloy is the true “get” of the deal, with the 26-year-old Higginbotham being a lefty reliever that will provide depth. According to Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic,

Scott Harris on Justyn-Henry Malloy: “He embodies a lot of the things that we value in hitters. He controls the strike zone. He has plus bat-to-ball skills. He does damage to all fields, and he raked at three different levels this year, plus the Arizona Fall league.”
