No love from the Guide, which allots him a measly $5 ... unsexy as he is as last October's heroics fade into the rearview mirror, I think it guarantees him solid playing time from the beginning of the season.  And barring a complete collapse, he'll rack up enough ABs to earn in the $10-15 range.

Howie doesn't get what MLBTR predicted.

Isn't agism in the Civil Rights Act? If it isn't, it should be.

30.  Howie Kendrick – Twins.  Two years, $12MM.  After serving as the Angels’ starting second baseman for nine years, Kendrick was traded to the Dodgers in December 2014 for Andrew Heaney. In the last few seasons, the now-36-year-old Kendrick transitioned into more of a part-time role, logging time at first base and left field in addition to his time at second base. Kendrick’s high-contact approach has aged like a fine wine, with a 130 wRC+ over the last three years including a stout 146 mark this year. It would make sense for him to land with a contending team with an unsettled first base situation and the occasional need at second base. He makes some sense with the Twins, Rays, D-backs or Brewers, and a return to the Nationals seems quite possible after a pair of season-saving playoff dingers.

Signed with Nationals for one year, $6.25MM.

What a year he had. An uptick, if not a giant leap, in all of the Fangraphs metrics except basreunning (and maybe with decimals even that improved).
