When baseball resumes and the freeze on major-league transactions ends -- whenever that may be -- the Phillies will still have multiple holes to fill. They added a late-inning reliever (Corey Knebel) and a bench piece (Johan Camargo) before the game shut down but still need starters in left field and center field, among other things.
After a delirious week of free-agent activity, options remain in left field but not so much in center.
In center field, the only standout free-agent name left is Kris Bryant, if you believe he can or will play center during some of his next contract. Bryant, who turns 30 in January, has started 14 career games in center field, 13 last season. Just 1.7% of his career innings have come in center. A team would be signing him for his offense and positional versatility, not his value specifically in center field.
Beyond Bryant, the best available free-agent centerfielder is probably 38-year-old longtime Yankee Brett Gardner. That's how few starting options remain at that position in free agency. Starling Marte (Mets) and Chris Taylor (Dodgers) signed. Mark Canha was another short-term possibility in center but he, too, signed with the Mets. Byron Buxton, previously a trade candidate, signed a $100 million extension with the Twins instead.
