Three of the five lowest-scoring offenses in the 2020 campaign belonged to the National League playoff team, but if you really want to make a noise in October, that’s not the ideal result. In fact, all three clubs (St. Louis, Cincinnati and Milwaukee) were unable to move beyond the first round of the playoffs in the fall. So what did they and the other two bottom-eating crimes in the league do to improve this offseason? Not so many, as shown below …
Pirate (219 runs, 73 wRC +):
- Pirates look even worse on paper than at the end of the season. Traded First baseman Josh Bell To the Nationals last week. Bell had a terrifying season in 2020, but last year he was a star caliber performer, significantly reducing .277 / .367 / .569 with 37 home runs.Berle Spirates hasn’t done anything important to intensify this winter’s attack, but the good news is that you need to get the full 2021 (but made up of many games) from third baseman. Is that there is Ke’Bryan HayesRoughly ran the league during its illustrious 95-PA debut in 2020.Also, there is no place to go, but it goes up due to the following holdover Gregory Polanco, Bryan Reynolds And Adam Frazier, Last season posted terrible numbers respectively.
Rangers (224 runs, 67 wRC +):
- Rangers have two newcomers to the outfielder David dahl First baseman Nate lowe, Those who want to improve their attacks in 2021.Otherwise, they would rely on the bounce effort from something like Joey Gallo, Willie Calhoun, Nick Solak, Elvis Andrus And Rogue Ned Odor.. Andras and Odor have been in the wrong direction for years, but it’s hard to imagine that the quintet will make things worse next year.The Rangers have been down enough in Andras lately, so they plan to use him as a backup shortstop / utility man. Isiah Kiner-Falefa Next season.
Cardinal (240 runs, 93 wRC +):
- The outbreak of COVID-19 for the entire team has led to two full games, fooling the Cardinal’s position in these rankings. Their 93w RC + was closer to average than horrifying, but that doesn’t mean they have no work to do aggressively.First baseman Paul goldschmidt Outfielder Harrison Bader, Two of their best batters are back in 2020.But Brad MillerThe second on the team at wRC + (121) is a free agent. According to wRC +, these three were the only above-average offensive players on the roster last season. The Cardinals haven’t done anything to improve the attack so far, despite facing problems almost everywhere.catcher Yadier Molina Like a second baseman, he is a free agent Kolten WongOn the other hand, most of their outfielders were overwhelmed by the plates in 2020.
Reds (243 runs, 91 wRC +):
- The Reds made a serious effort last winter to intensify their attacks with a contract with Nick Castellanos. Mike Moustakas And Shogo Akiyama.. Mustaka had a typical season, but Castellanos and Akiyama were less than expected. With the exception of trade, no one in the group will go anywhere in 2021. Similarly Joey bot, Eugenio Suarez, Jesse Winker, Nick senzel And Tucker Barnhart Hanging out in an important role. With the exception of the winkers that were great in 2020, the Reds will need more from everyone listed in the previous sentence.They also need to be upgraded with shortstops that are rarely tested Jose Garcia Are their current starters, but it’s unclear if the team will do so satisfactorily during the winter of cost savings so far.
Brewery (247 runs, 89 wRC +):
- We conclude with another team from NL Central, Milwaukee. Milwaukee joined the division’s rivals this winter and did virtually nothing to increase the chances of success in 2021. Brewers opposed keeping the infielder. Jedd GyorcoAmong the most productive batters of last season, he paid him a $ 1 million buyout instead of exercising his $ 4.5 million option instead.They also turned down the team icon Ryan BraunIt’s an option, but it was an easy decision as the six All-Stars earned $ 15 million in salary in 2021. Brown was almost a league average batter last season because of his honor. Can be said for most Brewers regulars.A better year from the former NLMVP, whether or not the Brewers bring outside help Christian Yelich, Keston Hiura, Avisail Garcia And Omar Narvaez It will be of great help to help the team work on more runs on the board in 2021.
