Comments on: Battling for a Starting Job in 2013, Presley Has Offseason to do List http://www.piratesprospects.com/2012/10/battling-for-a-starting-job-in-2013-presley-has-offseason-to-do-list.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

He is serviceable there if needed, but not good by any means. Marte, Cutch, and Jones is a starting 3 you can work with and Presley and Tabata should battle for the 4th spot… I don’t care if they do winter ball or not, but the best player should get it out of spring.

I dont think he is a starter. Presley is much more adapt at a 4th outfielder. I really dont know about Snider, he doesnt look like a starter either. I think we will see a trade that clears out this situation.

Yet they didn’t bring him down for instructs and they haven’t committed him to a winter league roster? Sounds like Presley starts off this four horse race as the long shot. Marte has a higher ceiling. NH just traded for Snider. Tabata is locked up and was acquired by NH.

Presley gives consistent hard effort unlike Tabata. Presley got abused on outside pitches this year, often it seemed like they were not in the strikezone and he got rung up. He will have to adjust to this. Garett Jones would be the guy to work with in the offseason…he had the same issues in the past and tightened them up to have a great year. I know Tabata has the guaranteed contract and sadly that usually gives guys an inside track. I would trade Tabata for nothing if some team would pick up 2/3 of his contract.

Ask if he can go to a team who knows how to teach, rather than carrying telephone poles.

Plus, I practice bunting my butt off.

Otherwise, it’s a 4th OFer career for ‘the king’.

I think Snider and Marte have the inside track but we shall see…
