But what if he has a solid year as a right handed slugger? He's playing for a Royals team that isn't going anywhere this year.
But the Red Sox could use another bat. The Yankees could have room in left field. The Twins could use some right handed pop in their line up. The Giants need a slugger. Florida could always bring in some more pop.
And who knows what team will rack up key injuries?
I would say the Angels... but after 2004, I am guessing Scioscia will say thanks but no thanks.
I'm not saying the Royals could get one of the top prospect back for him... but they'd get more than if they just let him go without offering arbitration.
What I am saying is, keep hitting home runs, Jose.
