The one assignment that is certain for Nevin with the Texas Rangers is serving as the designated hitter against lefthanded hurlers. Because Nevin can catch, play either infield corner and in the outfield, he should get enough at-bats filling in at different positions. Nevin batted .256 with nine home runs and 47 RBI in 73 games for the Padres.
Could he pick up multiple position eligibility this season? I could really use a guy like that.
His numbers should get better in Texas too.
