1B/OF Lance Berkman- 2013 Texas Rangers
The Texas Rangers were desperately seeking offense during the 2013 season, after losing Josh Hamilton to the Angels, thus leading to the signing of Lance Berkman.
The “Big Puma” played one year with the Rangers, batting .242 over 73 games in Arlington.
Berkman was once considered one of the greatest offensive outfielders in baseball, showing that off with the Cardinals in the 2011 World Series.
Much like the Rangers did with Vlad Guerrero, they signed Berkman to a one-year, $10 million dollar deal to limit the damage he could do against them.
Although Berkman couldn’t stay healthy that year, he still produced and that helped land him on this list.
