    Jerry Gil

    often voted best defensive infielder in Arizona system. High errors in minors, though.

    one of very best arms in all of baseball (until he had TJ surgery last year).

    after hitting nothing at all for years, he hit 27 HRs in 2006, yet was dealt for nothing more than Abe Woody. Doesn't walk. He couldn't play last season. He has whacked some balls this spring.

    reportedly plays all positions well, including CF.

    I can't say that I've ever seen him defend, and don't know how his repaired arm now plays. Can he defend at shortstop at a major league level? How could he (or anyone) not beat out Juan Castro? Is he too much like Keppinger?

    Injury wise he makes Austin Kearns look like Lou Gehrig.

    He can supposedly stand at home plate and throw a ball over the wall in CF.

    Thats Coombsian.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Coombs would catch it, though.

    is that all you got?

    he's currently ambulatory, plus Castro is so old that he can't play in Florida more than every other day.

    Yup. He just doesn't like to do it anymore for fear of injury again. Again, according to reports. Its not like I've seen it.

    if princeton had been Arizona's farm director, Jerry Gil would be pitching right now.

    but if he puts Castro into retirement, then bless his shoulda-been-a-pitcher's soul.

    Just sayin'.

    Difference is, Castro makes $1M whether he's on the team or not and Gil can go to AAA.

    is THAT all you got? The diff between $1M and major league minimum is scratch.

    Manzanillo's nephew, right? Does he only play well in spring and beat on his cup too?

    Activating Gil is value-added. We're building up our DR profile. Jerry Gil can go back and tell 'em to send the young talents to us.

    C. Trent mentions Gil on his blog today.

    Jerry Gil is back. The versatile Gil caught manager Dusty Baker's eye early in the spring and after a quad injury set him back, Gil has played well in his return. He starts today at shortstop, perhaps Baker is looking to see if Gil could play there in Alex Gonzalez's absence. It's Gil's first start of the spring, having hit safely in 4 of his 6 appearances. He's played SS, 3B, LF, CF and RF.

    We have Mario Soto and Edwin Encarnacion for that not to mention Juan Duran.
