He could compete for playing time behind Alvarez, he is still fairly young at 26 years old, he has a ton of potential still, and if Hurdle could tap into his potential either him or Alvarez could be moved to first. If not he could be a decent bench player with some power. I have always liked Stewart and I still believe he can become an everyday player.

He’s a class act and if healthy will win you some games.

Stewart provides Pedro insurance and has versatility you need from a bench player. On the upside if both Pedro and Stewart live up to their potential one of them could be moved to first filling a huge void.

It would be an interesting battle.

Depends on what it takes to get him and his salary. He can play 2nd and maybe LF. Better off the bench than X was and possible Plan B at 3rd.

Always liked Stewart and maybe a change of scenario could benefit him, and light a fire under Pedro’s ass.

Cedeno played better once Wood joined the roster, maybe Stewart will do the same.
