He stinks at first, plainly, but is serviceable in right. I’d see Marte, Cutch, and Jones as the primary OF with Tabata and Presley as the 4 and 5. I’m actually not opposed to Gaby at 1b if he gets the primary PT. He’s an excellent defender and has a good bat. Then you use a Hauge or Clement as the bench player or bring in another McGehee type to spot start.

When you bring a guy up and he barely gets to play, I would expect him to hit .225.

He hit better as an outfielder again, 20 points lower this year, and 20 point lower over his career. He’s had enough at bats over the years that it probably isn’t a coincidence.

I hope Alex bucks that trend!
