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
The player of whom you speak also plays well-below average defense at 3b. Considering I full expect Hairston to be delployed at SS when he returns, it sets the stage for one of the (if not the) worst defensive left-sides in the league.
