Ginter is left...but this is all I could find on him, it doesn't appear to be updated because hes on the As now, not he Brewers.

2004 Season
In 2003, Keith Ginter led all National League rookies with 14 home runs and appeared to have the inside track to be the Brewers' everyday second baseman in 2004. The acquisition of Junior Spivey changed those plans for the first half, but manager Ned Yost called on Ginter to replace the slumping Wes Helms at third base. When Spivey went down and Russell Branyan took over the third-base job, Ginter got most of the playing time at second base, although he missed nearly all of August with a strained left wrist.


Hitting
While Ginter received fewer than 400 at-bats, only Geoff Jenkins had more home runs for Milwaukee. A guess hitter who will look for his pitch, Ginter starts his hands in the hitting position, making him very quick to the ball, and he picks up his foot without striding. He's a first-ball fastball hitter who can hit for power to all fields. Ginter has trouble hitting the slider, however.


Baserunning & Defense
As a second baseman, Ginter does not have great range, and he managed to turn only 19 double plays in 54 games there. Bill Hall has greater range and is better at turning the double play, but committed a few more errors. At third base, Ginter was charged with just three errors in 47 games last season. His speed is no better than average for a middle infielder, but he was successful in eight of nine attempts to steal.


2005 Outlook
With Lyle Overbay at first base, it would be helpful for the Brewers to get some pop from a middle infielder. On their current roster, Ginter is the most likely source. With the Brewers unlikely to contend in 2005, they should give Ginter the job and see what he can do. In a year, super-prospect Rickie Weeks may be ready to claim the job, and Ginter may be looking for another position.

I'd take Ginter over Pena. Since you presumably already have all your starters filled in, I think Ginter offers better trade value with his 2B/3B elgiability if he starts off hot, and he also backs up two spots on your roster.

Lots of upside at 25. Batted .314 with 7 HR's and 35 RBI's the 2nd half last year. Has the skills to be 20/20.
