Doesn't sound like a MLB starter to me. Certainly not on a contender.In his final season in Cuba, Guerrero hit .290/.402/.576 with 21 home runs in 328 plate appearances for Las Tunas. For the last five seasons, Guerrero has posted solid offensive numbers, though the Cuban league is known for inflated offensive numbers. Badler says that Guerrero is likely ticketed for Double-A or Triple-A to start out.

Guerrero sat out last season because he was upset for not being picked on the final WBC roster. There is some question for me about that. Also, at 26-27 years old, he's not the second coming of Puig or anything.
Other than that, now that Dusty is gone, it feels like someone else might be able to change the tone enough to restore my hope for Phillips. I don't want him chirping to the media like he does, however. Just play for your team and your teammates.
If he is traded, I think it would be a challenge to replace his defense, but not his bat. I think Infante or Kendrick would be fine. Ideally he would bring back a young closer type arm or a starter with high velocity in AA or AAA.
With the money saved I would look at resigning Choo.

If he became a guy who got on base a good clip with his defense, he could curse out CTrent and tweet about how bad his contract is before every single game and I'd be happy to have him.

The time to change BP's approach would have been when he was 22, not 32. He is what he is at this point.

I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
I would call Texas and offer them BOTH Phillips and Bailey for a package of:
