#3 – OF Avisail Garcia – Miami Marlins
Yet another offensive force that will be missed by the Brewers, Avisail Garcia spent parts of two seasons with the Crew, peaking last year when he posted career-highs in home runs (29) and RBI (86).
Last season when Christian Yelich was faltering on offense, Garcia’s production filled the void and ended up being a huge part of the team’s offensive output.
The career year Garcia posted last season landed him a huge four-year, $53MM contract with the Miami Marlins right before the lockout was put into place. He has joined youngster Jesus Sanchez to form what could end up being one of the better outfields in the majors.
Through his first 27 games as a Marlin, Garcia has had a hard time with the bat. He’s hitting just .204/.241/.291 with a pair of homers and 32 strikeouts in 103 ABs.
But all signs point to him turning it around and matching his production from last season.
