Don't recall seeing this mentioned lately but Alcantara is striking out a TON to start the year.

 

EDIT: Actually only at 29.6%. Honestly I would have guessed it was higher.

Bryant with another walk after two yesteday. Nothing like a 5/6 BB/K ratio.

He's going to be a monster. Not as good with the glove as Schmidt but better with the bat. BOOK IT.

Geiger HR. He's starting to get more interesting for me. Is he strictly a 1B? I know he used to play 3rd.

 

He's a butcher. I saw hin in person one time in Peoria a couple years ago and it was ugly. He had Baez at SS next to him so the left side defense as a whole was decent, but he booted a couple routine balls that night and just generally looks pretty awkward out there.

I'd think Geiger would be 1B/DH/LF type. His arm is strong, so throwing from left wouldn't be a problem. But if he were to hit enough, I suppose he could get some of the same sort of LF consideration that guys like Vitters get, or Manny Ramirez in Theo's Boston prime.

 

geiger is kind of the same discussion group as Vogelbach has been in since signing. Not going to play because of his defense; how bad will his defense be? How much does he need to hit in order to justify the defense? Geiger does have a chance to be a pretty big HR-hitter, I think. So, we'll see how this year goes. He'll be 22 all season, so it's not like he's too old to be interesting, if in fact he's improving.

kyle, our guy Rivero blew his first save yesterday. Bummer.

 

Given the Veras/Russell/Wright struggles in the pen, there will be guys called up sooner or later.

 

Rivero, Cabrera, Parker, Mateo, Ramirez, that's 5 RHP all of whom have variably good big-league arms and could be interesting call ups in time.

 

Plus Rosscup, of course, from the lefty side.

 

And that's not counting Vizcaino.
