What if his name wasn’t Andruw?

There’s a 10-time Gold Glove-winning CF, soon to turn 34, who slugged 19 homers with a .341 OBP last season still on the market. He’d come cheap, probably one year and $2 million.

He may not be ideal, but why wouldn’t you pursue Andruw, considering the need for a right-handed hitting OF? Outside of a few incidents early in his career Andruw never caused a problem and was generally well-liked. The fact that he circumvented Scott Boras and signed a team-friendly contract earlier in his career counts for a lot in my book.

BTW, Andruw posted a .914 OPS vs. southpaws last year.
