Notes from the Sally’s 2020 Shorebirds Preview

Recommended Posts

Seeing the praise for Joseph Ortiz's SS glove - curious if Luke or others think that's why Nick Gonzales played 2B.  Tonight's the first time it has hit me they were I guess a keystone combo last year.  Certainly part of why I have been skeptical of Gonzales as belonging in the Martin/Hancock/Torkelson tier is why was he at 2B not SS?

I guess Gonzalez after Ortiz would be symmetrical with Rutschman after Grenier.

A mature collegian like Handley gives me a little extra comfort there won't be any Rutschman Delmarva shenanigans opening the year.

I think that's probably why Nick Gonzales was at 2B, but I don't think Gonzales is a SS at the next level regardless, he's not an average glove at 2B yet (although there is the general feeling that his work-ethic will get him there).
