Abreu hit .263 with 10 walks for a nifty .429 on-base percentage in 16 games this spring, showing that his eye at the plate remains outstanding even if most of his other skills have deteriorated.
He can’t really run, play defense, or hit for power anymore, but Abreu could still probably do a decent job as a pinch-hitter for another NL team. Of course, that’s a very limited role and he’s a 40-year-old who didn’t play in the majors at all last season, so this might be the end of the line.
