Re: Claussen Better Suited for the Pen?
I think that he could be valuable in spot relief work against left hand hitters. Look at his numbers vs. lefties:
BA. .146, HR 1 (11 vs right handers), BB 1 (19 vs RH).
Now it is a smaller sample size than right hand hitters, but those are pretty good numbers. So if there were a few lefties in a row or if we needed a big out vs a left hander he could help us, but who knows if he would be happy in that role. But it's not like he hasn't had his chance.
