Clearly a safer option than Josh Anderson, but the Braves cannot be excited about going into 2008 with Kotsay as their center fielder. His games played have dropped in each of the last 3 seasons, and his back problems have been well documented. I think the bid at $9 is where it should be, but I would not be surprised if Anderson (who has averaged 51 SB's in his last 4 ML seasons) outearns Kotsay this year.

Thanks for the heads-up, SeyHey.

The default for Current Team is the team that a player was on at the end of 2007. We try to keep up with all the player movement, and when we don't, depend on readers to let us know.

Yo. He's with Atlanta now.

Probably true, but a healthy back would help.

At this point in his career, not much upside, even with a completely healthy back.
