I’ll take his experience and defense over what Harrison and DeJesus have done in MLB over far more limited appearances.

I think it’s time to call up De Jesus can’t be worse than those 2

There was a stretch last season where his bunt attempts were comical.

I’d prefer to keep Inge over Harrison if that is the option. My real answer would be none of the above.

He can’t run can’t hit can’t hit for power. I doubt he can bunt so pretty much anybody from single A and up should do as good a job as Inge. All kidding aside I think he goes when Walker comes back tomorrow. At least I hope so.

I am all for upgrading through a minor trade here but internally there really are not any viable options.

And Inge had another nice ab today. If you play Inge on defense to rest someone you are pretty much guaranteed an 0-fer from him.
