    Gurriel in 2021 regular season and 2022 post season had a BB:SO ratio of close to 1:1. But that was an anomaly for his career. Brantley has a career BB:SO ratio of 483: 656 or about 2:3. As hitters, Brantley is better. As a defender, Yuli has dig skill, but his range is getting smaller and smaller. His dWAR was only -1.1.

    My preference is to bring back Brantley IF healthy and convert Yuli to a player/coach or liaison role with the front office.

    The only FA signing I expect is Abreu. Others are possible, but I think Abreu would be the best fit.

    If JV and the above were done:

    R 2B Altuve
    R SS Pena
    L LF Alvarez
    R 3B Bregman
    L RF Tucker
    R 1B Abreu
    L DH Brantley
    R CF McCormick
    R C Malonado

    Bench
    IF Hensley
    C Lee
    OF Leon
    C/IF Diaz

    Yeah! JV and Brantley would be FAs along with Abreu.
