Or the way he handles the bench is a minor flaw?

Obviously, NH must think fairly highly of Hurdle to hire him in first place and then bring him back for next season after two awful Septembers.

Any manager that thinks Tabata should be a defensive replacement in RF for Jones when Presley and Snider are on the bench is crazy. Tabata is at best a poor defensive player.

There’s no reason to trade him. He’s affordable, he’s young, and while he’s coming off a poor performance, he’s not really blocking anyone.

He will be in AAA for at least a while. Santos could start in altoona again.
.
Can Santos play 3B? he could be a much better version of Harrison if he can.
