Doumit Called Up ... Eligible at C and in the Of

Postby SonsofSlam04 » Sun Jun 05, 2005 8:59 am

Wigginton was sent down yesterday and in his place Stud Catching Prospect Ryan Doumit was called.. He has been absolutely killing AAA pitching. In most leagues he will be eligible at C and in some leagues in addition to being eligible at C he will qualify in the OF. I recommend teams in need of catching pick him up ASAP!

I don't see where he will play in the OF or at Catcher, it seems to me that he is only getting a short term flavor for the bigs during intraleague play while there is the DH. But there are no everyday positions for him.

I have to wonder where he'll play mostly. Will he replace the offensively-challenged Humbert Cota at C, steal time from Restovich in the OF, platoon with Daryle Ward at 1B? As someone mentioned, the few games where he can DH solves that problem, but other than that you wouldn't think they'd call him up to sit the bench.

Remember these are the Pirates we're talking about. Common sense says that you stick someone like this in the lineup at once, but McLendon is also the one that kept Tike Redmond in the lineup for almost 2 months :-P

Its my understanding he is going to get the Craig Wilson Treatment.

C/1B/OF.

I can't see him having much value now, unless he absolutely tears the cover off the ball.

boy, cbs sure made a stink about him (victor martinez???):

LATEST NEWS

The Pirates recalled catcher-outfielder Ryan Doumit from their top farm club. A second-round draft pick in 1999, he has emerged as one of the Pirates' top prospects with a .344 average, 12 homers and 35 RBI at Triple-A Indianapolis. He will catch occasionally -- although the Pirates already are carrying catchers Humberto Cota and David Ross -- play the outfield and be a DH in AL parks during some upcoming interleague games.
(Updated 06/05/2005).
FANTASY ANALYSIS
The most-anticipate prospect of the spring has arrived! "You've got a switch-hitting catcher with power ... those guys just aren't out there," GM Dave Littlefield has said. Yeah, Victor Martinez comes to mind, which should have catcher-needy teams racing to pick him up right away. Doumit is ready to hit big-league pitching and has proved it. He took a rehabbing Curt Schilling deep on Triple-A opening day and tore up big-league arms this spring. As a switch-hitting catcher with pop, he is a must own in NL-only leagues and someone to certainly consider stashing in mixed leagues. He could make a really big splash in short order. His bat is too promising to slot as a reserve.
yeah, yes...
