I’m not upset, I was just wondering why. Someone else made the comment that the Likely intent was to slip him through waivers and have him be first base at Norfolk, which is reasonable. But no, we’ve got a lot of first baseman types already and we don’t need another one, even if he’s left-handed. And yes, in his cup of coffee he was lousy, and it was only a cup of coffee, but remember the jump between triple A And the majors is the biggest jump of them all, and it is to be expected that most players don’t make the jump. So the onus is on him to prove that he can.
He has an .861 career OPS in the minors. .279/.340/.520/.861
