2019 MLB Free Agency predictions: landing places for players 26-30 (Twinkie Town)

For, today, here are the 26th-30th best free agents, and my prediction for their landing spots. The ranking of free agents comes from Fangraphs.

2019 Statistics: 295 PA, .297/.369/.402 (.771), 3 HR, 31 RBIs, 9.5 BB%, 19.3 K%, 1.3 WAR

Holt is not exactly your modern hitter. Despite his lack of power, he has still had two above average seasons in a row and will be valuable somewhere. He is one of the more versatile players in baseball, playing every fielding position except catcher and center field in 2019. Holt is the type of player who will get a nice deal and fit perfectly on a team as the new 26th roster spot.

The Indians no longer have Jason Kipnis or Yasiel Puig and maybe even Lindor. Brock Holt can come in for a cheap price and play a Marwin Gonzlez type role with Cleveland. For two seasons, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Cleveland to acquire Holt.


29. Wade Miley, SP, Age 33
