Cleveland Guardians: I hope not

Mark Canha, OF: He’ll be 33 in February. He comes from Oakland where they unearth players for a living. He got on base a whopping 36 percent of the time. Pretty good considering he hit .231 and struck out 128 times in 625 plate appearances.

I don’t know, but I’ve seen this before. He worked in Oakland. He’d flop in Cleveland. For what it’s worth, Canha posted a WAR of 2.5 in 2021.

Kole Calhoun, OF: The 32-year old last played a full season in 2019, when he appeared in 152 games for the Angels. He was a -0.2 WAR player last season. He’s gets on base at a lifetime .322 clip, but was at .291 last season.

Next. Jose Ramirez is Bret Hart of Guardians. dark

The Guardians need impact players capable of driving runs in. I’ll pass.
