There's a lot of reasons not to sign a player beyond your myopic prescription answers. For example, they may just suck at the plate and wouldn't help a team that already has a terrible lineup. I'd rather put up with De Aza's D than watch Young strike out every other time he doesn't pop the ball up to the infield.
