Cantu

Postby swyck » Tue Apr 24, 2007 6:13 pm

Apr 24 MLB.com reports the Tampa Bay Devil Rays have called up 2B Jorge Cantu from Triple-A Durham.


I'm in a deep league, and wondering whether to pick him up. With Iwamura going on the DL he may get some time either at 2b or 3b.

I would expect to see him at 3rd. Upton's lack of fielding prowess at second thus far is likely to keep him at 2nd, not push him to third. For what it's worth...

117 RBI's last year is enough for me to take a flyer on him if I had the room on my lineup. Say he starts off fast, he could become excellent trade bait especially in keeper leagues.

That was two years ago unfortunately.... He was injured for a long stretch last year. Then came back way cold.

err... the 117 rbis was from 2 years ago, he had 67 last year and missed a significant amount of time due to injury

Don't bother. It's already been announced that Wiggington will be replacing Iwamura at 3B while he's on the DL. Appearently, Cantu has been pretty horrible down in AAA. And he seems to have pissed off the entire Devil Rays organization. At best, he might play 2-3 games while Iwamura is out, then return to AAA.

It surprised me that they called him up. He complained when they sent him down and really does not deserve to be playing in the majors. I don't see him getting any playing time.
