How about a center fielder
Preller has already made two big moves to try and improve the outfield for 2020 bringing in Trent Grisham and Tommy Pham.
In my opinion, Pham is the only real upgrade here as I view Grisham as a platoon/4th outfielder.
Right now Manuel Margot and Grisham will likely platoon in center, but I’d like to see that combination move to right field.
There aren’t a lot of great center field options on the market this offseason, so maybe they stick with Margot/Grisham in center and look for a right fielder after (hopefully) trading away Myers.
I’m certainly good with that direction as well. Either way, the work in the outfield can’t be done.
Starling Marte is a name I’ve been shouting out all offseason. He has the ability to play center, but he’s a much better defender in a corner spot.
Kevin Pillar was recently non-tendered and wouldn’t be a tremendous upgrade offensively, but he’d bring Gold Glove-caliber defense to center and allow Grisham to move over to his more comfortable position in right.
To me, making one more big splash in the outfield and finding a frontline starting pitcher are the keys for Preller at the Winter Meetings — along with finding a trade partner for Myers.
