    According to the milb.com game thread, he had two putouts. He also fielded a ground ball double and a lined single. Don't know if these were clean or misplayed.

    Not much to go on.

    If anyone knows, it will be in threads like that, where a bunch of those guys have MILBTV packages.

    I live near the Mudcats park and will see several games this year, beginning with the home opener. I'll convey what I see. I am especially interested in his move to left. I saw him play first base here last year when he wasn't injured.

    Carolina unfortunately isn't going to be on the Milb.tv package as far as I know.

    Can Justin Smoak play LF? And I'm not trying to be cute. I really have no idea.

    When Should Rangers Call Up Smoak?

    Smoak, who is ranked as baseball's ninth-best prospect by Keith Law and 13th overall by Baseball America, currently remains in Triple A. Let's take a look at the pros and cons of bringing Smoak to the majors in the near future.
    BTW, here are his numbers through the first 10 games

    That contingency has had a huge influx in people that I dont remember seeing back in the day.

    Watch it get smaller again when Alonso comes up and tears up the NL for the Reds.

    I'll say it now, no matter what happens in future. Beckham made more sense for us as a power hitting infielder (SS, 2b, or 3b). And if you were going to take a 1b, I prefer Smoak over Alonso.

    Id agree with that. I also dont think they took Alonso because he was better though. I think you have to weigh in that if Alonso produces his trade value is going to be more valuable than a guy like Gordan Beckham.

    He'll have to be pretty valuable, then, as a power-hitting infielder-- especially at 2B or SS-- has inherently more value than a power-hitting 1B.

    In other words, I'd rather have Beckham at an 850 OPS over Alonso at a 900 OPS.

    And, for the record, I would have loved to have drafted Smoak over Alonso. He's a switch-hitter (something this lineup sorely needs) and has shown more power.
