Fourth Outfielder


Recommended Posts

From MLB Trade Rumors:

 

 

 

Though the Marlins have an exceptional young outfield in Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton, the club is still on the lookout for a fourth outfielder,tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Ideally, Morosi notes, they’d acquire someone who can handle center field to back up Ozuna. The free agent market has little to offer in terms of center fielders who saw significant time in the Majors last year, though the trade market has some options. The Padres have a number of outfielders that can play center field (Will Venable, Abraham Almonte and Cameron Maybin), Oakland’s Craig Gentry is an excellent defender, and the Cardinals’ Peter Bourjos is elite with the glove as well. One buy-low option on the free agent market could be Franklin Gutierrez, though his health issues are significant and he didn’t take the field in 2014. All of those names are my own speculation.

Which one do you guys think would be best to go for? Considering I don't think we necessarily have one right now.

I'd sign up for a Cosart for Bourjos deal.

 

Where do i sign?

 

 

 

You can't be serious. A fourth outfielder isn't gonna get us any closer to the playoffs. A weakened starting rotation would put us farther back. No thanks.

 

I'd shop Haren for any major league ready fourth outfielder on the west coast. With the starting outfield that we have there's no need to put any serious attention into finding a fourth outfielder.

Am I alone on Austin Wates? Not a great bat or anything, but our 4th OFer will rarely see the field. He's a glove first guy capable of playing all 3 spots and he's a great pinch run option as well, something we've been lacking a while. Not to mention he's displayed great plate discipline, another benefit off the bench.

You are so alone on that, Wild Blue is sleeping on my couch tonight and my wife is taking her Apartment Hunting in the morning.

How about Ichiro? His baseball career would face to finish line. Still remaining as FA.

 

If he want to make lots money, we couldn't sign with him, but I think he can accept backup roll gladly.

 

As time goes by, that possibility will grow.
