Jeff Mathis, C, Arizona Diamondbacks (Minus-0.8 WAR Avg)
In light of the Arizona Diamondbacks' resurgent pitching, there is something to be said about the work Jeff Mathis has done behind the plate. But he's been a total black hole at the plate. He has just a .542 OPS and is tied for dead last with his adjusted OPS+ of 36. For perspective: 100 is average.
Brandon Moss, DH, Kansas City Royals (Minus-0.8 WAR Avg)
Mathis at least gets the benefit of playing a premium defensive position. Brandon Moss doesn't have a defensive position, so he needs to hit. With a .657 OPS and well-below-average 70 OPS+, he's not.
Ryan Goins, INF, Toronto Blue Jays (Minus-0.8 WAR Avg)
The Toronto Blue Jays don't play Ryan Goins for his bat, but it still hurts to give 219 plate appearances to a hitter with a .590 OPS and 55 OPS+. Making matters worse is that his typically strong defense isn't rating well for either DRS or UZR.
Tom Koehler, SP, Miami Marlins (Minus-0.9 WAR Avg)
Tom Koehler gets to pitch in the National League's relatively weak offensive environment and at a huge home ballpark to boot. Nevertheless, his returns in 10 starts have been disastrous. In 45 innings, he's allowed 54 hits, 24 walks, 12 home runs and 40 runs for an 8.00 ERA.
