The Bench

C Stephen Vogt (2019)

Stats: 280 PA, .263 BA, 111 OPS+, 36 XBH (10 HR), 40 RBI, 30 R, 1.2 WAR

Vogt edges out Chris Stewart, Nick Hundley, Hector Sanchez and Andrew Susac for the backup catcher spot. He was one of the steals of the 2019 season after signing a minor league deal.

1B/OF Aubrey Huff (2010-12)

Stats: 1,342 PA, .264 BA, 116 OPS+, 111 XBH (39 HR), 152 RBI, 152 R, 5.6 WAR

While bringing him back on a two-year, $22 million deal proved to be a mistake, Huff was instrumental in the team’s 2010 World Series run after joining the team on a one-year, $1 million deal. He led the 2010 squad in home runs (26), RBI (86) and WAR (5.7).

IF Matt Duffy (2014-16)

Stats: 962 PA, .281 BA, 98 OPS+, 65 XBH (16 HR), 106 RBI, 114 R, 6.2 WAR

Duffy finished second in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2015 when he hit .295/.334/.428 with 28 doubles, 12 home runs and 77 RBI in a 4.7 WAR season. He was the team’s primary third baseman that year, but capable of playing all four infield spots.

OF Gregor Blanco (2012-16, 18)

Stats: 2,257 PA, .255 BA, 94 OPS+, 133 XBH (21 HR), 169 RBI, 263 R, 5.6 WAR

A case can be made that Blanco deserves to be the starting left fielder on our All-Decade team, but if we’re setting this up like a real 25-man roster, he fits better in the fourth outfielder role. He was a steady performer for the 2012 and 2014 title-winning teams, and one of the few speed threats with 81 steals during the decade.

OF Andres Torres (2010-13)

Stats: 1,268 PA, .249 BA, 102 OPS+, 116 XBH (22 HR), 103 RBI, 167 R, 6.0 WAR

Torres posted a 122 OPS+ with 67 extra-base hits and 26 steals in a 5.3 WAR season in 2010. He was also the piece the team used to acquire Angel Pagan from the New York Mets prior to the 2012 season.
