Bryan LaHair

Bryan LaHair had a couple of months in 2011 and 2012 when he was a monster for the Cubs. Then they found other options, most notably Anthony Rizzo, and he ended up in Japan. LaHair’s best position is probably DH. He strikes out a ton, but has hit 38 home runs in a season in the minors and has a major league OPS of .764. So he has a chance. LaHair always seems to have one or two streaks a year when he goes crazy, and if you need an extra bat while he’s in one of those streaks he could help. He played some outfield in Chicago, and with David Cooper at first, he will probably end up either in left or at DH in Columbus.
