I really don't think Elvis Andrus is happening. Doesn't make sense to me to staff a guy on the tail end of his career like that — no upside whatsoever. I think I'd rather see them just give the job to Arroyo. I'm sure they've checked in on Lugo but doubtful it's to start, and Myers isn't very good at all.What is the current payroll projection? I’d imagine that adding something like Elvis Andrus, Seth Lugo, and Wil Myers would likely cost $35-$40M aav…I think they will spent but it will most likely be on short term deals when possible.
They have about $60M to spend before the first luxury tax threshold, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them go over. Adding Correa ($30M), Hoskins ($12.6M), Kepler ($8.5M) and Senga ($20M?) while trading Pivetta ($5.9M) and Verdugo ($6.9M) gets them right at the mark.
