Patrick Wisdom, Chc, One potential option, not as good

Another more affordable option that could bolster the Miami Marlins offense is the Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom.   Wisdom is not a for average hitter, with his career batting average sitting at .214.  Why would we even consider him you ask?  Wisdom has 14 home runs and 28 RBI on the season and a .760 OPS.  That’s a big improvement across the board.

The big negative for Wisdom is he strikes out way too much at a 38% clip.  With that said, he should be very cheap, and he’s on a tiny contract with arbitration coming next season.  It wouldn’t be a big asking price for Wisdom and hit hard hit percentage is the highest of his short career at 54.8%.
