6. Nick Castellanos
Castellanos could very reasonably be higher on the list but comes in at 6. He is opting out of his contract in Cincinnati after a career year that saw him hit for personal bests in batting average (.309), and home runs (34).
He does play outfield like the aforementioned Suzuki and is more a of sure bet offensively but it’s his higher price tag that lowers him. Castellanos will be 30 years old for the ’22 season and is probably looking for a 5 year/ $125 million or more contract. That would put him out of play if the Texas Rangers were to sign a SS/Kershaw for example, meaning he would only become a priority if the team misses out on higher ranked targets.
Castellanos would still be an incredibly valuable player to obtain, though, as you can see by his numbers. For a team starved for offense like the Texas Rangers, this seems like a no-brainer.
