Fangraphs on Ryan Church

Erik Manning:

Assuming he’s healthy, you can bank on Church getting on base at a .340 clip, hit for some moderate power and play excellent defense in the corners. With an unusual paucity for corner outfielders in this free agent market outside of Matt Holliday and a couple of overrated and soon to be overpaid players such as Jason Bay and Johnny Damon, Church could be a decent patch job for a club, and is at worst a first-rate 4th outfielder, all at the price of virtually nothing. …

Maning says Church, a 2-win player, would cost $8-9 million in the open market.

Szymborski:

Church is what he is: a starter corner outfielder who won’t hurt you too badly (he’s solid defensively there) or an excellent 4th outfielder. He could represent a pretty decent bargain for a team that loses out on Holliday or Bay and needs a quick Plan B for a year or two. …
