If you don't consider 6 for his last 36 struggling, perhaps there's a slot for me in your lineup.
I don't like having him as my only SS option, which he was. He's hitting .225 against righties and .204 at home, and he makes me nervous just because of his injury history. I do love the kid as a ballplayer , but IMO he's a platooner, not an every dayer.
TheRiot has 15R 10RBI 5SB .320AVG , nice lefty/righty splits and hits .378 at Wrigley, with multiple position eligibility. Khalil has 40 more at bats, so the R & RBI diff isn't a big concern. TheRiots 4-0 deficit in HR is balanced by his 5-0 edge in stolen bases.
But anyway, yeah, we're talking the same Khalil that I've been struggling with, thanks for asking!
