This season, Almonte has logged his most significant big league action since 2017. Selected to the major league roster in late May, the switch-hitter picked up 175 plate appearances with Atlanta. He got off to a strong start but his production tailed off beginning in late June. Overall, Almonte posted a league average .216/.331/.399 line while spending most of his time in left field.
Almonte has picked up at least some MLB time in each of the past nine seasons. The 32-year-old is free to pursue opportunities elsewhere for the season’s final few weeks, although he won’t be eligible for postseason play because he was let go after August 31.
