ANALYSIS
The 34-year-old has 196 homers at the highest level to his name across his 11-year MLB career. The switch hitter was mostly a fringy first baseman for the majority of that time, but a late-career renaissance saw him hit .270 with 38 homers in 2017 and remain an above-average hitter for two more seasons.
