His contract this year is only 7 million and yes he will be a FA next year. But he would be great protection in the 5 hole behind Pedro. Plus that would still leave you The Hammer to deal to a contender for another piece. Put him in right field and let him rake since he now appears to be healthy again.

All 3 are considered power hitting prospects, albeit top 75-100 type guys, as we won’t get a top 25 type guy for that price.

Barajas is batting .230/.288/.398 (686 OPS, .292 wOBA). His career line is .237/.284/.413 (697 OPS, .298 wOBA).
He’s right at his career averages. If anyone expected him to be batting .280/.330/.460, then he is a bust, but that’s not what anyone thought.
I guess that didn’t fit the narrative that Rosenthal was trying to weave in the story, though. That’s OK…it’s fun to slam the Pirates (especially on Pirate-themed websites) rather than offer constructive criticism to look for ways to improve them.

I like how Hurdle said that the current platoon would go on “Pause”. Matt L definitely wouldn’t help.

Sure would’ve been nice if we’d have grabbed that Matt Adams fella from Slippery Rock. Why is it the Cards always get these kinds of guys? Sheesh.
