Yeah someone was saying that earlier. If he can prove to Bochy that he can hit LHP he should get the full-time gig.

i could see him being kind of a poor mans James Loney (like "i invested my life savings with Bernie Maldoff" poor)...which would make me consider picking him up off the WW to fill in for an injured UTIL player if he's in the middle of a hot streak

I think he should have to prove to Bochy that he can hit one out of the stadium. I think someone was saying earlier that he could.

Is he a home grown player? Or did he sign as a FA from Japan?

1 - It was implied in the post above that he might gain 3B eligability - is this really the case?
2 - Where might he hit in the line-up? For a 1B who stand to be .280/20 tops, line-up position is sort of make or break in terms of fantasy viability. If he will be 6th or something like that I am not too excited.


1 - No, he is no a 3rd baseman and he will not get time at 3B, i don't know why that was mentioned.
2 - He'll probably hit 7th to start the season but i can definitely see him moving up if he's hitting well. Right now the line-up is set as:

Winn
Renteria
Lewis
Molina
Sandoval
Rowand
Ishikawa
Fransden
Pitcher
