Profile: After declining the Jays' qualifying offer, Joey Bats found the free-agent market particularly chilling, to the point where he had to swallow his pride and take a one-year deal worth marginally more than the original tender from the team who offered it. But those are the breaks for a 36-year-old outfielder who picked a bad time to have his worst season in nearly a decade. Nearly everything went sideways for Bautista in 2016, as he played in just 116 games and hit just .234/.366/.452. For mere mortals that would be a perfectly fine offensive season, but for Mr. Bats that was a 122 wRC+ -- his worst mark since 2009, his first season in the Great White North. His iso dropped, his whiff rate spiked and a rough middle of the season -- sub-.700 OPS marks in just 18 games played between June and July -- waylaid what was otherwise a fairly typical season for Bautista. However, the slugger hit .255/.381/.467 over the season's final two months and showed almost no ill effects from the turf toe and knee issues that cost him time. At some point age is certain to creep in, but this seems to be the best situation for Bautista to rehab his value and still cash in one last time on the free-agent market. (@Brandon_Warne)

The Quick Opinion: Father time is undefeated, but Bautista's rates looked good outside of a tough stretch in the middle of the season. A bounce-back season seems likely -- at least as likely as it can be for a 36-year-old.
