Re: Reds looking for right handed bat

Last year in MLB he hit .251/.340/.466 for an OPS of .806, and hit 26 Hrs. This year he was projected by Baseball Prospectus to hit .283/.365/.493 for an OPS of .858, with 24 HRs (I know, just projections...).
Although this guy has fallen in disfavor here at RedsZone, if he gets called up and produces like he is capable of, he would go a long way toward solving the need for a strong RH bat.
YOU know who I mean, don't you? His minor league stats are HERE
Agree that EdE is part of the plan. This team needs more though IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
