News & Notes

Kevin Goldstein of BP makes mention of the surging Juan Lagares in his weekly Monday Morning Ten Pack:

"Lagares made some noise last year when he hit .349 between two levels, but as an outfielder without much in the way of power or patience, he had to keep hitting to maintain his prospect status. … He’s far from perfect, but he’s improved both his physical conditioning and his defense this year, to the point where he still fits better in a corner but can at least hold his own in center. It’s hard to see him becoming an everyday guy with his skill set, but he does look like the kind of player who could have a career."

RC: I've said it before, I see Lagares' ceiling as a Major League starting center fielder in the mold of Cardinals' outfielder Jon Jay. Not a stud by any means but he'd do enough of everything to be a solid player. Hell, with his BB% up by over 100% from last season he's even learning to walk a bit - crazy as that sounds. However, if he doesn't fit in center and is forced to a corner, Lagares immediately becomes a sometimes starting fourth outfielder.

    Star of the Night

    There really wasn't a whole lot to be excited about last night, but Logan Verrett was again very good. He's been impressive so far this season.

    Goat of the Night

    I don't see how we can choose anyone other than Yohan Almonte. Yikes!
