McPherson a deep mixed sleeper?

Postby outflow » Fri Feb 27, 2009 5:58 pm

Will be awefully interesting to watch the spring boxies to see his lineup spot when Hanley is around. Batted 3rd today, had 2 hits.
Definetly falls in the post post hype class with the pedigree and finished with 42 bombs last year in AAA.
He'll have to fight off Helms which is a given...provided he stays healthy. I read his name somewhere but have no idea the writeup now (here or national writing).

Thoughts?

oh he's definitely a nice sleeper. i guess doing well in ST might actually matter in his case.

Worth keeping an eye on. Flying under the radar, 'cept round here of course.

playing time is the only factor acting against him. Between Gaby Sanchez and Jorge Cantu he could be the odd man out.

I would not be surprised if the Marlins trade Uggla and/or Cantu this year which give time to a lot of fantasy worthy players ala Bontifacio, McPhearson, Sanchez, and Morrison.

no doubt that he's somebody to keep an eye on, plenty of talent and great year in AAA n 08. I could see .260 with 30 bombs and 100 rbi if he had a fulltime slot

Marlins released third baseman Dallas McPherson.
Our expectations for the Marlins get lower by the hour. Because of the foolish decision to re-sign Wes Helms to a guaranteed contract, the team is now in a position to have an entirely right-handed bench. It's not even a good right-handed bench. Ronny Paulino and Helms are only acceptable against left-handers, and Robert Andino and Brett Carroll have yet to show they can be useful major leaguers at all. Those four combined to hit .223 with nine homers and a 118/33 K/BB ratio in 449 major league at-bats last season. McPherson is hardly a sure thing, but he sure seemed like a great fit for a team going with a light-hitting righty at third. Hopefully, he's able to quickly find a fit elsewhere. rotoworld.co

Is he badly hurt and they can't be bothered paying for him to rehab?

No, he's been playing this spring but was apparently beaten out by Bonifacio for 3B (even though he should switch positions with Uggla) and Cantu at 1B with Sanchez getting sent down.
