Top Remaining Free Agent Right Fielders

There's not a ton of talent left with free-agent right fielders, but there are still some capable names out there.

The top remaining free agent right fielders:

  • Robbie Grossman
Grossman was acquired by the Atlanta Braves from the Detroit Tigers at the trade deadline last season. He wound up posting a .217 batting average, with five home runs, 22 RBIs and 16 runs scored over 46 games. Perhaps, he's not a starting player at this point, but Grossman is a capable batter against left-handed pitching, which could make him a good addition for some teams. Over his 10-year career, the thirty-three-year-old holds a .245/.346/.377 triple-slash line, with 80 home runs, 366 RBIs, 63 stolen bases and 447 runs scored across 1,011 games.

  • Kole Calhoun
The Texas Rangers declined their $5.5 million club option on Kole Calhoun for the 2023 season. Last season, in his Rangers debut, Calhoun posted a .196 batting average, with 12 home runs, 49 RBIs, three stolen bases and 36 runs scored over 125 games. At thirty-five years old, Calhoun is obviously past his prime, but he's still a capable outfielder and has some solid power. He'd be a decent platoon player for some teams.

  • Ben Gamel
Gamel is entering his eighth MLB season, having spent the last two years with the Pittsburgh Pirates, posting a .239/.335/.378 triple-slash line, with 17 home runs, 72 RBIs, eight stolen bases and 85 runs scored over 237 games. Gamel doesn't pop out in any category, offering decent batting average, below-average power and below-average speed. As a result, the thirty-year-old likely won't garner any more than a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Other honorable mentions:
  • Jaylin Davis 
  • Rymer Liriano
  • Shane Peterson
