Spilborghs to start playing CF regularly(er)

Postby acsguitar » Wed Jun 11, 2008 2:49 pm

With Matt Holliday back from the disabled list, the Denver Post reports that Ryan Spilborghs will see increased playing time in center field at the expense of Willy Taveras.
"Obviously, I am not going to make all the plays that Willy Taveras can make, but a good center fielder, which I think I am, is going to make the routine plays," Spilborghs said. "If it happens, it happens. I think I have shown that I can definitely play every day." Taveras is an elite defensive player and has gone 23-for-25 stealing bases, but is batting just .234/.290/.274 in 54 games.


Pretty excited about this as a rockies fan. In deeper leagues or leagues with 4 OF spots he's a nice pickup

Ugh, I'm a Taveras owner. :-P Do you see this being a 50/50 split or what?

not addressed to me, but so far this year he has 25bb to 16k and a .920 ops. definitely worth a pickup if he's available in your league

I guess I just wonder if those periphs are sustainable, given he's not that experienced.

He had the most RBI's (or 2nd most) for a batter with under 250 AB's last year. He's a good ball player and his eye is seemingly getting better. His Career BB/k ratio isn't that good I don't think (As good as it is this year)

probably wont sustain, but i think it will be quite good. in the minors his bb/k was .631. not sure how good that really is, but comparing to minor league numbers of some other guys:
sizemore .795
granderson .366
bruce .384
francouer .336
holliday .594
bay .684
so what does this mean? i have no idea. but i think he'll be fine
