Trot Nixon, RF
Trot Nixon's future with the Boston Red Sox was brought into question earlier this season when the team acquired Wily Mo Pena. In response, Nixon has stayed relatively healthy and hit .311 with a .415 OBP, which is good for fifth in the American League. Nixon's power, however, seems to dwindling. He has just six home runs at the halfway point.
