2. Melky Cabrera – OF
Another switch-hitter, Melky Cabrera seems to do everything well enough and not one single thing exceptionally well. He hits for a good average with solid power numbers just about every year, and this past season was no different, as he slashed .285/.324/.423 with 17 home runs, 78 runs, and 85 RBIs.
Cabrera hasn’t hit below .273 since 2011, and if the Baltimore Orioles could use anything, it’s someone with a good batting average. Cabrera has some good plate discipline (another thing lacking in Baltimore) and could really balance out the Orioles’ lineup.
He’s also got enough power that he doesn’t drain that out of your lineup. Like I said, he’s good at everything and not excellent at any single one thing, and there’s a place for players like that in a lineup.
