For a big guy, Yorman sure doesn't slug much.
The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle
Jason Kipnis had an oblique injury earlier this year that cost him about the same amount of time as Yorman. Yesterday when asked about the injury, he said:
"I wouldn't use the word progress, I'd use the word adjustment. As far as the oblique goes, it's going to be there all year. It's not going to go away until the offseason.
"What I can do is find a swing that works for me. I thought we may have found something coming out of Detroit. It was a step in the right direction and we're going to keep making adjustments day to day and pitch to pitch and see how it goes."
It seems likely that Yorman is still dealing with the effects of the injury and may be all season. It's certainly frustrating for everybody that wants to see a jump in numbers, but expecting a lot this year is probably unrealistic
Nah, he's just a bum. I looked at his AA slugging percentage. Go back to listening to Jim Bowden.
Yorman has a sub-.600 OPS this month. There goes the argument of "it was just a bad May because of injury."
Yep, that's exactly what it means.
Uh oh, Yorman is 1-1 today and his OPS is over .600 on the month. I guess we all need to change what we think.
Right now if you had to guess on the chances of Yorman being a better than league average outfielder for at least 5 full MLB seasons what would you all say?
