If Adam LaRoche has a broken collarbone, who will replace him on the roster? They could wait for Marrero, I suppose. I don’t think Julio can stay productive playing everyday, even if he’s fully healthy.
I’d like to see them give James Jurries (hitting .306/.359/.565 in Richmond after hitting .306/.359/.653 in Greenville) get a shot, but I don’t know that the Braves take him seriously. Dave Nilsson wasn’t hitting and retired again. The other first baseman at Richmond is Hessman, and I think we’ve seen enough of him. Scott Thorman is the Greenville 1B, and he’s only played three games above A-ball.
