Option 3 - Daniel Vogelbach

Daniel Vogelbach is another wild card free agent that could produce many different results. He was injured for part of last season so durability is of course a question, much like Soler. He is a former All-Star which is a feather in his cap. 

During that 2019 All-Star season Daniel Vogelbach hit .208 with 30 home runs and 76 RBI. On paper he looks like he could be the guy but his amount of home runs in 22 and 21 are not consistent with his ability. He is a Florida native from Fort Myers and so could fit in very well. 

The past two seasons he has hit 13 home runs and 18 home runs. If he can get out of New York and return to form with the Marlins he could again be in the mid twenties in home runs. He should have a lot of opportunities with runners on base if he signs with Miami and I could see him as a platoon DH/1B option with Bell, so long as he can remain healthy, which is questionable. There certainly are more options but here are a few unsung ones that could be good fits if they can have a revival.
