It doesn't make sense to me to discuss how to build next year's roster, with pieces that probably won't be here. Brad Miller, Freddy Galvis are free agents, and may just sign somewhere else. Ronald Torreyes and Travis Jankowski are eligible for arbitration . Both of these guys were signed this year to minor-league contracts; either or both could well be non-tendered, rather than offered arbitration. (They probably should be non-tendered; you can make a case for them on ML minimum contracts, but arbitration levels? Jankowski has 5+ years of service time.)
I would suggest we assume the free agents are gone; assume several of the arbitration cases are non-tendered. Eflin, Dominguez and Hoskins are no-brainers to return; Alvarado will probably be tendered; but Knapp, Torreyes, Jankowski, Quinn? Buh bye.
Cutch and Herrera (both have club options) are, in my opinion, borderline cases to be bought out. Cutch can still hit, when he's in the lineup. Herrera's marginal, streaky, and turns 30 in December. He might repeat 2021's performance (an OPS+ of 95), but that seems to be the best-case scenario. I'd cut him loose.
So it seems to me that next year's non-pitcher roster will be composed of the guys we have under control - the multi-year contracts (Harper, Realmuto, Segura, Gregorius) and the kids, plus whatever we can acquire from the free agent pools or trades. (Yeah, I'm not thrilled about Didi, but we're on the hook for about $15 million, so he'll be there in some capacity.)
