    It might be interesting to look at the compensation depressed FA market to see whom they might pick up that would be a Brad Miller type, but for the outfield. Who would do a decent enough job at #4/#5 outfielder, and might even step into a starting role if there are injuries (or if the younger players fall short). Someone they could pick up for a reasonable price on a 1-3 year contract. Not necessarily a star, just a solid, productive player both at the plate and in the field.

    Here’s the list, from ESPN FA tracker –

    Jackie Bradley, Jr. – 30 years old
    Ryan Braun – 36
    Rusney Castillo – 33
    Yoenis Cespedes – 35
    Shin-Soo Choo – 38
    Charlie Culberson – 31
    Jarrod Dyson – 36
    Adam Eaton – 31
    Brett Gardner – 37
    Robbie Grossman – 31
    Billy Hamilton – 30
    Jon Jay – 35
    Matt Kemp – 36
    Jake Marisnick – 29
    Nick Markakis – 36
    Cameron Maybin – 33
    Thomas Milone – 25
    Marcell Ozuna – 30
    Joc Pederson 28
    Kevin Pillar – 31
    Jurickson Profar – 27
    Cesar Puello – 29
    Yasiel Puig – 29
    Josh Riddick – 33
    Domingo Santana – 28
    Steven Sousa Jr. – 31
    George Springer – 31
    Michael Taylor – 34
    Yasmany Tomas – 30

    Based on our limited dollars available the names on the list I would go after would be:

    Pederson
    Profar
    Markakis
    Pillar
    Eaton

    Of course there might be some others available via trade. Stl25 and JJ have a done a nice job zeroing in on the Mets, who might be a good trade match with us. David Peralta of the Dbacks would be another good option.
