7 months agoThe Tampa Bay Rays finalized their one-year, $3.5 million deal with free-agent outfielder Avisail Garcia on Friday. He can earn an extra $2.5 million in performance incentives based on plate appearances. The 27-year-old is convinced his disappointing 2018 campaign was the result of knee and hamstring injuries that caused him to develop bad habits with his swing. He hit just .236 with a .719 OPS but a career-high 19 home runs in 93 games for the White Sox. Garcia was second in the American League in 2017 with a .330 average, 18 home runs and an .885 OPS, however, so he could bounce back with his new team if he's healthy. He's expected to play right field or serve as the designated hitter in 2019, mainly against left-handed pitchers. Garcia has bounce-back potential, but because of his injury history and the fact that he may essentially be a platoon player, he's more of a target in the later rounds in deep mixed leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
