Baseball America – Stats

If you don’t want to push Marte to left, or move Chipper there, how about Kelly Johnson? Sure, he’s hitting .235, but (a) that’s about a hundred points better than Mondesi and Jordan, and (b) his OBP is .435. Or let James Jurries blunder around out there. Sure, he can’t play defense, but he’ll hit and you can bring Langerhans or whoever in for him late. Same goes for Wes Timmons in AA. They’re organizational players basically, so who cares if they hurt themselves? Hell, Esix Snead is starting to look good at this stage.
