It is not exactly a secret that the Cleveland Guardians need to find a way to improve their roster this offseason. Some former members of the organization have been identified as players they should and should not attempt to bring back. This next group is comprised of other current free agents who could be intriguing additions to this Guardians roster. 

1. Hunter Renfroe

Expect the outfield to be a recurring theme here because outside of Steven Kwan and some prospects with hopeful contributions down the line, there is not really a whole lot to be excited about when it comes to the outfield production of the Guardians. Hunter Renfroe is someone who can provide a short-term solution in Cleveland while some of the long-term options make their way through the minors.

Is Renfroe a particularly exciting option at this point in his career? Not necessarily. However, he is still capable of providing the one thing that the rest of the Guardians' outfield cannot. Consistent home run power. Renfroe's ability to consistently hit for extra bases more than offsets his issues with batting average and strikeout issues. An addition of Renfroe to the current group of Guardians hitters would give them the power they desperately need and hopefully contribute to this lineup not being the worst team in baseball when it comes to hitting home runs.
