30. Yonder Alonso

Yonder Alonso, 1B, Cincinnati Reds – Yonder Alonso has earned an average of 0.84 Wins Above Replacement over his ten years in the big leagues. Through his first six seasons, Alonso was only slugging .387, then in his age-30 season, he found his power stroke. He entered the 2017 season with 39 total home runs and added 28 more that year. He slugged .501 that season and between 2017-2018 he slashed .257/.340/.458. He is currently signed to the Braves where he’ll likely serve as backup to Freddie Freeman.

29. Aaron Hicks

Aaron Hicks, OF, Minnesota Twins – Hicks has compiled 11.9 Wins Above Replacement in his seven seasons. Hicks has averaged only 93 games per season since 2013. When healthy he’s a very productive player. Last offseason the Yankees signed him to a seven-year extension. He’s posted 15 defensive runs saved in the outfield and finished with an OPS+ over 100 in each of the past three seasons.

28. Casey Kelly

Casey Kelly, RHP, Boston Red Sox – Casey Kelly was drafted in the first round of the 2008 draft by the Red Sox. Kelly debuted with the Padres in August of 2012 against the Atlanta Braves. He shut the Braves out over six innings and was awarded the Win. Unfortunately, Kelly required Tommy John surgery the following spring. He made a couple of appearances in the minors in 2014 and converted to a relief pitcher in 2015. He was traded to the Braves in the Christian Bethancourt deal. He is currently playing in the Korean Baseball Championship League.
