White Sox: Three free agent second base options
2. Brad Miller
This signing would be more about adding a potential left-handed bat off the bench with some pop for the White Sox.
Miller had a rough first couple of months to the 2019 season as he was DFA’d by the Cleveland Indians in April and then kept in the minor leagues with the New York Yankees after signing a minor league deal with them.
However, the Philadelphia Phillies acquired Miller in June and Miller did not disappoint.
Over 66 games for the Phillies, Miller registered a superb .941 OPS while hitting 12 homers and driving in 21 runs to give himself a 135 OPS+.
Furthermore, Miller played five different positions for the team just like Holt, with the difference being that Miller played shortstop instead of first base.
Miller, though, has experience at every position on the diamond besides catcher and pitcher which makes him the definition of a super-utility player just like Holt.
The 30-year-old is probably best used in the middle infield and in the corner outfield spots.
Once Madrigal comes to majors, Miller would be a great pinch-hitting option against tough right-handers and could allow many other players on the team to DH.
If the team wants to take a gamble on Miller maintaining his strong offensive stretch in 2019 over the course of an entire season at a fraction of the price as Holt possibly, it could prove to be worth it for the White Sox.
