It’s been a rough season for Cameron. He’s hitting .149/.212/.266 in 105 plate appearances. This after an injury-shortened and disappointing 2010 season in Boston as well. He has played in only 33 games this year and has lost playing time to Darnell McDonald and Josh Reddick lately.
Cameron is in the second year of a two-year $15.5 million deal. If he ends up getting released following the DFA period — which seems likely, because who wants to pay Cameron millions? — he can be had for the veteran minimum. Assuming he’s healthy, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him picked up given his versatility and the fact that, in 17 major league seasons, I don’t think anything has had anything but good stuff to say about his attitude and character and all of that. He could be a useful fourth outfielder.
