What about Alex Sanchez?

I know he's not a typical guy we would covet, but why not?  He just got designated for assignment by the D-Rays, so the asking price can't be much.  So far this year he's having a career year, batting .346/.373/.466/.839.  He's always had a high average (career .297), although before this year his OBP was not stellar considering the above-average BA.  Plus, he's a lefty who is hitting well against both RHP (.837 OPS) and LHP (.857 OPS), so he might be a candidate to platoon with Byrnes or Kielty against RHP.

He's also just 28, and makes $600,000 this year.  He would add some speed to our lineup (although absolutely zero pop).

One bad note: I've seen him butcher more than a couple of balls in the OF that have cost his teams games.  But it's not like Byrnes or Kielty (or even Swisher) is going to win a Gold Glove anytime soon.

What's to lose?  He's been DFA for cryin' out loud.  Food for thought.
