I’ve talked about all three of these guys at length during the offseason, but they still remain very attractive outfield bats who could help the Padres if things don’t pan out as hoped in the outfield.
This 27-year-old for Baltimore has 30 home run power and would add some thump to the lineup.
He’s not a great fielder in the outfield, but he’s actually been pretty good at first base if San Diego could somehow get rid of Hosmer or use Mancini in a platoon role with him when Mancini doesn’t start in the outfield.
We’ve been covering Mookie Betts extensively this week on the site and a trade could happen any minute.
I wrote earlier this week about the impact his bat wold have on the Padres lineup immediately making it one of the best in the National League.
While I’m trying not to get my hopes up that a trade happens now, if it doesn’t, that still leaves the door open for it to happen during the season.
Haniger recently had another injury setback that put on hold any chance of him being dealt this offseason. He’ll need to prove that he’s healthy and the player he was two seasons ago before the Mariners can even consider trading him.
