You are wrong. Go look at the 2019 DH stats..several teams in the AL had the same guy taking up a large majority of the at bats, with many of them getting 500+ at bats and that doesn’t include Alvarez, who the Astros brought up later in the season and was their exclusive DH for the rest of the year (he had just under 400 at bats).
I brought up Santander and Hays only because your post addressed them. I agree, Nunez wouldn’t have cost them at bats. I take your point there. It’s probably Stewart who benefits most from Nunez’s absence, at least until Diaz gets called up.
Sure. I’m sorry if my comment was misunderstood. Actually, maybe it wasn’t. The Same value can mean different things base on team need. Most teams would prefer their 1.5 WAR in a more versatile package, unless they have a glaring need for the single tool offered by the limited guy. You mentioned 4 AL teams, which is four out of 30.
As I said earlier, he will probably be playing somewhere next season, but it won’t be for very much.
