The team continued making moves Wednesday, dealing outfielder Stephen Piscotty to the Oakland Athletics .
The move came just hours after the team strengthened its outfield by acquiring Marcell Ozuna from the Miami Marlins .
Even if you buy Powell’s strong numbers in a limited sample last year, Piscotty has the better track record.
Maybe some of that is linked to the players they already had, but it’s worth noting they oversaw Yonder Alonso’s breakout, which was aided by hitting more fly balls.
They picked up a player they believe can bounce back whose contract is well under market value for a number of years.
