Inexpensive RH power bat for the outfield




Here is my plug to sign Stone Garrett who is a minor league free agent from the D-Backs. RH hitting, power bat that can play all 3 OF positions with a good arm. He has 2 options left I believe. He has a little swing and miss in him and walks at league average, but he hits the ball with authority! He has a Justin Upton type build and can swipe an occasional bag. In Reno last year he hit .275, .332, 568 for a .900 OBP with 15 stolen bases and 28 HR. He struck out at a 27% rate and walked at a 8.4% rate. I really think that he is worth a 2 way contract where if he gets called up he could earn a $1.5 million contract with incentives to get to $2 to $2.5 based on games played. If he produces, its a very inexpensive power RH bat that can play anywhere on the grass. Give him an incentive if he attains a Silver Slugger or Gold Glove nomination of doubling his contract and adding a year team option. In 76 MLB AB in 2022 he hit 4 HR and batted .276, .309, .539 for an .848 OBP.
