3. Mitch Garver - Los Angeles Angels
Injuries have often prevented Mitch Garver from reaching his potential, but he proved in 2023 that he can still mash when healthy. Despite being limited to 87 games, he batted a robust .270/.370/.500 with 19 home runs and 50 RBIs. He also came up big in the postseason, slamming 3 homers with 14 RBIs in 14 games.
It's time for the 32-year-old to find a new home, ideally a place where he can be a primary DH while still filling in as a backup catcher and first baseman when needed.
Based on that criteria, the Los Angeles Angels appear to be a likely landing spot. They're about to lose their full-time DH Shohei Ohtani and need to replace some of his thump in the lineup. They'll likely want to DH Mike Trout more often to keep him healthy, but Garver could still be the primary DH when Trout is playing the field.
The Angels are also familiar with the former Silver Slugger after sharing a division with him for the last two years.
Ohtani is irreplaceable, of course, but Garver can still be a middle-of-the-order bat when healthy.
