Last season Alberto had a 609 OPS vs righties. If he doesn't improve that substantially he will be platooned. I think he gets the opportunity to show he can do better but right now I think he is a platoon vs lefties.
Wilkerson came through the minors as a 2B. He had a 783 OPS vs righties last season. His 783 OPS vs Alberto 609 OPS vs righties is too big to ignore.
Wilkerson, Sisco, and Severino are all platoon numbers from last season. Alberto is a career platoon number vs lefties.
They were really gushing about Rutschman. Said no. 4 might be too low, and that he’ll probably be ready for the majors this year but held down for service time reasons. And yes, they did say higher ranked than Mauer was because he has more power. Hmmm, where have I heard that before?
I think the following projections are very optimistic:
Also, I don’t understand who you think is getting the at bats at 2B. I’ll be stunned if Alberto bats only 220 times if he’s healthy.
