Shifting doesn't always work. 

According to the BIS Video Scouts who report their findings in The Bill James Handbook, Matt Joyce faced the shift 73 times this year. Two times the shift robbed him of a hit. Ten times he beat the shift by going the other way.

His net gain of eight hits facing the shift tied him for the best in the majors with Mookie Betts.

Joyce could see additional playing time with National League teams deploying a designated hitter in 2020, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The veteran outfielder was originally set to play a few times a week as part of a crowded right-field picture for the Marlins, but with the DH now available as well, Joyce is likely to be in the lineup any time Miami is facing a right-handed pitcher. The 35-year-old has a lifetime .252/.354/.452 slash line against RHP with 133 of his 145 career home runs.

I know the scan's not dazzling, but he helped win us a title one year.  I'm going to have to look up the details.

Joyce agreed to a one-year deal with the Marlins on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Joyce will join his seventh organization after hitting .295/.408/.450 with seven home runs, 32 runs scored and 23 RBI in 129 games with the Braves in 2019. The 35-year old will join fellow free agent signee Corey Dickerson in bringing experience to a young Miami outfield. Joyce could enter a platoon situation with Harold Ramirez and Garrett Cooper, both of whom hit right-handed. The veteran recorded a .871 OPS in 212 plate appearances against righty pitchers last season.
