  1. You could well see some injury regression, assuming he goes back to 1B. He was never really the model of consistency, but when he played 1B, he averaged ~ 140 games. At 3B, he averaged 120 games. He presumably was worn down a little at 3B. A few less injuries, and a little less wear & tear, might be enough an average 1B, with 3B eligibility.

  2. Maybe he could avoid injury if he took a job as a DH for an AL team. I’m hoping the Jays take a good look at him, especially if it’s on a relatively cheap one-year deal. At worst, he could platoon with Adam Lind…

  3. I was thinking Jays too. Could also see the Mariners take a flyer on him if the price is right. Maybe Cleveland? Oakland? He’s best suited as a platoon DH at this point, but it’s also handy to have a guy that could play 1B/3B in a pinch.

  4. The White Sox will re-sign him (post option decline) to fill their black hole at 3B before he has to settle for 60 games as Lind’s weak-side platoon partner.

  5. I’m betting he ends up in Cleveland to play for Francona. Indians are expected to buy out DH Travis Hafner’s final year and they still have an opening at 1B as well.
