Adam Engel/Other Options
Rounding out the outfield as the backup is projected to be Adam Engel. To those who dislike Engel, at least he is not starting and he is on the bench now.
On the bench, Engel provides Gold-Glove-like defense that can be substituted into the game late as a defensive upgrade. He also provides a good amount of speed as a pinch-runner who can score from first on a gapper. The bat may not be there, specifically referencing his .215 career batting average, he is a great upgrade in the other three tools off the bench.
He is, however, fighting for his job as that bench piece. Along with the at least three names on the current roster, there are a few prospects in the system that can do those same three tools effectively and maybe even one or two more.
Among those names is Leury García. When Nick Madrigal gets is inevitable call-up sometime this season, García will be pushed back and he will be the best overall player coming off the bench. He could be used as the fourth outfielder over Engel or any other outfield option.
