While his stats are below average and he is about as inconsistent as they come, Dylan Moore’s athleticism allows him to be the ultimate Swiss army knife in the field, and he’s also shown flashes at the plate. I’m probably in the minority, but I would love to see Seattle give him a shot to play every day as they did with Toro last year, although limiting him to one position would not be getting the most out of his versatility.
I think if given a shot, he has a chance to fill a Joey Wendle-type utility role that the Mariners have been lacking for a while. Having a utility guy that can fill in anywhere to give different position players a day off their feet is an underrated luxury that not a lot of teams have. It’s even more of a luxury when your UTIL provides plus WAR (D-Mo registered 0.9 WAR in 2021, and 2.8 over his career), minimizing the drop-off from your everyday guy.
Whether he ends up as an everyday guy in a utility role or primarily sticks at one position, I think the only way to maximize his strengths is by keeping his glove in the field as often as possible and giving his bat a chance to get hot.
