John Gall- Cardinals

Postby lugs » Thu Mar 10, 2005 8:27 pm

Does anyone know Gall's status for this season. He had a nice year in AAA and I thought he would have a shot of making the team as an OF or backup 1st baseman. Can't find any info. on him. At one point in time he was thought to be a player that was going to go to the Rockies in the Larry Walker deal, but he stayed with the Cardinals.

Thanks

The problem is that Gall is bad defensively in the outfield and the only place he can play well at all is first base. La Russa values defense a lot which is why he's been in the minors so long. Fortunately, he benefits from having a 7-time gold glove winning corner outfielder there to help him, and he's put in a lot of work this Spring to look good out there, it looks like it might be paying off.

The Cardinals are lacking when it comes to a right-handed power bat off the bench, so it would benefit them greatly if Gall could improve his defense in the OF and make the team. If he makes it, he could be Eduardo Perez, but I don't expect a lot of fantasy output from him this year. John Mabry is ahead of him on the depth chart for any position he can play, so it would take a few injuries for him to play everyday.
