Gary Sanchez- Catcher

For 2022, Sanchez posted a .205 batting average with 16 home runs and 61 runs batted in (RBI). He never lived up to the expectations many people placed on him as the Yankees catcher of the future. But he can be an average catcher with power in any lineup. His defense is not incredible, he allowed 36 stolen bases and threw out 14. This is the biggest problem for Sanchez as his defense never eclipsed 1.0 wins above replacement (WAR).

He showed promise from 2017-2019 as he hit 33, 18 and 34 homers, respectively. Any team that signs the backstop must believe Sanchez can recapture that magic.

Josh Harrison- Infield/Outfield

An incredibly underrated player is Josh Harrison. Originally a second baseman when he debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates, he now plays a little of everywhere on the diamond.

In 2022 he played 90 games at second, 23 at third, and two games at left field. With the exception of 2019 where he hit .175, he consistently hit over .245 since 2013.

He never possessed power as evidenced by 16 home runs being his most in a season. Nor does he drive in a ton of runs, 60 being his most in 2021. But Harrison is a solid utility piece off the bench capable of hitting for average and being a solid glove in the field. At 34 years old, he will not give teams any long-term solutions, but he can provide value to a team that must bolster the bench.

Trey Mancini- Designated Hitter/ Outfield

After returning from a battle with stage three colon caner in 2021, Mancini won a World Series with the Houston Astros in 2022.

Despite a down year for average, he finished with .239, Mancini hit .255 and .291 in the 2021 and 2019 seasons. He swatted 18 home runs this year, but routinely hits over 20. With 97 RBIs in 2019, and 71 in 2021, he can be a solid bat in the middle or top of the order to drive in runs for a team with a solid lineup.

In the World Series, Mancini primarily operated as a bench piece, but he played in left field and right field throughout the season. He also logged 39 games at first base. With the universal DH, Mancini can fill that role too.

It is unlikely he reaches the high plateau of 100 plus RBIs or 35 homers, but with his numbers he can benefit a lineup.
