Inge, 35, hit .218 with 12 home runs in 83 games between Detroit and Oakland last season. He’s never hit for high average, but has shown decent power numbers throughout his career; he hit 27 homers on two separate occasions (2006 and 2009).
Inge has played all across the diamond in his 12 big league seasons. He’s primarily a third baseman, but has also played all three outfield positions, catcher, and second base.
Bill James projects him to hit .222 with 8 HR and 30 RBI in 93 games, should he be on the MLB roster. If Inge has a solid spring, he could compete for a bench spot. He probably doesn’t have any business on the 25-man roster considering the club has a few younger, capable options. He could provide some decent depth, however.
