How about Dallas McPhearson?


Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's probably a Gamel thread somewhere, but has anyone heard any rumblings about us just bringing him up this year? I know there are the defensive questions, but "he's a professional hitter" who may just work out like Braun. Give him a month at AAA (which will also let us test the waters with the Hall/Branyan platoon) and just call him up after the all-star break if we don't have a better option.

I like how many people will trade Gwynn for basically nothing, either a band-aid for this year or someone extremely underwhelming prospect-wise. I realize he's not a favorite of many on this board, but I'd like to think we can get a good pitching prospect for him, rather than a career minor leaguer or a washed up veteran.

Yea, I think the fear is that he'd be too much like Braun. He's likely hit well enough, but he's not going to field well right now. At least it doesn't appear that he's going to based on what he's done up to this point in the minors.

 

Of course, you can absolutely never predict that a player will hit like Ryan Braun did last year. Mat Gamel will be a good big leaguer no matter what IMO. But if he's a corner OF'er his value to use drops significantly. If he sticks at 3rd, he's as valuable as just about any prospect we've brought up in a while.
