It’s been a while, but unless you havn’t checked, Tony Abreu is back… with a vengence!
What is a player who is switch-hitter, can play all the infield positions (shoot, probably all the outfield positions), has decent power and above average speed, worth?
Tony Abreu (former TOP 5 Dodger Prospect) is back and better than ever. He has 148 AB’s at ALBQ and here’s his stats:
- .988 OPS
- .342 BA
- .377 OB%
- .612 Slugging
- 8 HR
- 34 RBI
- 13 Doubles
- 3 for 4 in SB
Yeah, Mark Loretta is a good teammate, but put him on the DL for a hangnail and call up Abreu who can pinch hit from either side of the plate. A couple of years ago, Dodger Brass thought that Abreu was “jaking” it. Two or three surgeries later, the doctors fixed his groin problem. He WAS injured. He’s back and he’s a hitter. Can you keep him down long? This Guy Is A Stone-Cold Hitter!
Question of the day?
What to do with Jason Schmidt? His control is poor (it has been in every game) and it is painful to watch him pitch. It would have been a nice story, but I really don’t see him being effective. Now, we only scored 1 run lat night, so it wasn’t his fault we lost. We average 5+ runs a game. If we score our average, we win. Instead gets a leadoff HR and we only can manage 4 hits after that. Wade, Belisario and Lindblom are all ready. What do we do with Jason Schmidt? How about Jeff Weaver?
