Available Bats By wOBA

Weighted on-base average is a great stat to measure overall offensive production.  Using FanGraphs, my own list of trade candidates, and a 200 plate appearance minimum, here's a list of potentially available bats by wOBA:

  1. Carlos Beltran - .394
  2. Michael Cuddyer - .371
  3. Aramis Ramirez - .370
  4. Casey Kotchman - .367
  5. Hunter Pence - .366
  6. Mark Reynolds - .355
  7. Marlon Byrd - .353
  8. Michael Bourn - .352
  9. Chris Iannetta - .349
  10. Melky Cabrera - .349
  11. Ty Wigginton - .340
  12. Laynce Nix - .339
  13. Carlos Pena - .339
  14. Jeff Francoeur - .338
  15. Denard Span - .337
  16. Kosuke Fukudome - .336
  17. Josh Willingham - .332
  18. Colby Rasmus - .328
  19. Johnny Damon - .328
  20. Jonny Gomes - .328

The list looks reasonably healthy at first glance, but I was liberal with my inclusions.  Take out Cuddyer, Ramirez, and Pence for various reasons, and you realize that the trade market consists of Beltran plus a few decent hitters for whom you still might have to overpay.
