    Re: Tanner Rahier's Struggles

    I have some insight on Rahier. He had strep throat two times keeping him at a low level play for about 5 weeks. He dropped 22 lbs. in the season. I know he has trained all winter and went into the strength training invite on Jan. 24th of 2013 at 205 lbs. and strong. I think he will have a much better 2nd season.

    This makes me feel much better about Rahier.

    Changes my perspective on Rahier too. Would love to see the kid bounce back strong.

    It makes me feel better too, but I didn't realize he was that big. If he's already over 200 pounds as a teenager, I doubt he'll stick at SS. He'll probably be 220-225 by the time he hits his late 20s, are there aren't a whole hell of a lot SS that size.

    He profiles pretty much universally as a 3B.

    If I remember right, that was what they were saying coming out of the draft. (I thought he was already a 3rd baseman?)

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    Rahier still hasn't seem to find his way yet. Still young but numbers to date are .206/.251/.353/.604

    Only 7 walks in 177 PA.
