Wow, less than 12 hours after I picked him up for my team, the Red Sox call him up. Nice timing.
Now, the question is what he can do.
Roto Authority says:
"Dustin Pedroia definitely figures to be either the regular shortstop or second baseman for the Red Sox in 2007. He's hit well in Triple A this year, with a .305/.384/.426 line. All the scouting reports seem to say that while Pedroia is good enough to be a regular right now, he doesn't project to get much better.
Baseball Prospectus's PECOTA system actually sees more power than he's shown this year - something in the range of a .450-.460 SLG. He'd make an excellent top-of-the-order guy. Given his high contact rate, Pedroia profiles as a .300 hitter almost right away. He can probably scrape together 10 HRs for starters. The runs and the ribbies will depend on where he hits in the lineup, and he's no speedster.
If all goes according to plan, Pedroia would be similar to Mark Loretta circa 2003. BP's comparable list is intriguing, featuring players like Gary Sheffield, Marcus Giles, Adrian Beltre, Alan Trammell, and Ian Kinsler in the top ten."
