For league minimum, I absolutely would take a chance too.
However, some concerns I have beyond the obvious .638 OPS he has right now...
1. His K% is up almost six percent (17) from last season (11)
2. He's hitting a ton more ground balls than fly balls
3. His line drive percentage is also down
To me, these indicates declining bat speed. I would take the chance because of the low financial risk. However, I'm not sure he'll be able to recover to his career norms.
