Baltimore Orioles Houston Astros
Trey Mancini is actually struggling in the postseason, but his career numbers at Fenway Park are so good that he’s on this list, anyway.
He absolutely dominates in Boston. Over 39 games at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark throughout his career, he’s hit .338/.401/.563 with 51 hits, including 13 doubles, three triples, and five home runs. The 30-year-old first baseman/outfielder/DH also hits well in Baltimore (duh), the Bronx, and Toronto, and has more home runs at Yankee Stadium (7) and Tropicana Field (6) than any other opposing team’s ballpark. Considering the Sox’ struggles against the division this season, having a former rival who handles the ALE well could be a huge difference-maker next year.
While the Sox aren’t in the market for a first baseman (their cup runneth over), Mancini could play the outfield and DH now that JD Martinez will also be a free agent.
Mancini should’ve spent his entire career with the Baltimore Orioles, but bringing him back to the American League East would be the next best thing.
