Definite Interest in Adeiny Hechavarria

Interesting to note that when Hechavarria was the same age as Martin was last season, he posted a -2.1 rWAR and 56 OPS+, compared to -0.6 and 54 for Martin  in 2019.    The next year, he improved to 86 OPS+ and 0.8 rWAR.     So, maybe there’s hope for Martin this upcoming season.  

That's an interesting comp, although I just want to point out AH wasn't platooned like Martin was in the second half last season. I like him, but I think he's going to have to prove himself in Norfolk first, offensively; AH can help to hold the D together in the meantime.

There's just no point in going after a mediocre veteran like Hech - who cannot hit.  

I wonder whether the hope is that they'll make up for Villar's absence when they finally bench or release Davis, move Mancini to first, where he'll continue to hit, and have a whole outfield of good young hitters playing a full season. That way we can carry someone like Hech, though just for a year or two at most.

I'd bring in Hechavarria on a similar contract as Alceides Escobar last year.  Let Martin and some other camp invites fight it out. If Escobar previals sign him to a one year contract.

I'd like to see what our young pitchers can do with an actual good defense behind them.

I think we got a great deal with Iglesias. He may have given us a discount for everyday ABs. 

Start the over/under for how many times Bordick calls Iglesias something like a “true professional” this season. 

I’m going 150, and I might be really low.
