How is he the same as Iglesias defensively?
Galvis had a -3 OAA and -4& success added at SS last year compared to Igelisas at 3 OAA and 5% SA. That's a 6 OAA difference and 9% success added difference.
If you wanted those numbers defensively I think Sanchez or Martin could have done that. Heck, maybe even Urias.
Now, he was much better in 2019 and 2018, so why the big drop off? I worry when players entering the season at 31 and coming off a big drop in defensive ability. Now maybe something was bothering him, I don't know, and I guess he's cheap enough, but those statcast offensive numbers are pretty putrid and if he's not going to bring a great glove, then why not give those PAs to Martin or even Urias?
I guess in a year where it probably doesn't matter, I just don't see how this upgrades us all that much.
Well if he hits a legit .400 as you suggested this year...
I wouldn't bank on him being up by 2022, but it's possible. He'd be 21 in June of 2022. He'd have to have an outstanding 2021 minor league season and carry it over to the start of 2022 in order to get promoted. I'm sure we'll hear CoC's thoughts on the Orioles gaming his service clock at some point.
All depends on how well he does. But I do think that if he's up in 2022, that's a good thing...means he's turned into a stud.
