Problem is, the sample was so small in AA that those two weeks really hurt his overall numbers.
As for his tools, he doesn't have a bad one. None of them are considered plus, but I don't think one of them is below average either. His glove is fine. He isn't Drew Stubbs, but he isn't Jonny Gomes either. I like the overall package he brings to the table.
I am not saying that Felix Perez doesn't have value, but why does he have more than Fleury or Barnhart? Both catchers play more valuable defensive positions well and swing pretty good sticks too. Sorry for digging; I am just curious about your thought process.
