He's a guy I would stay away from in the draft, but could be a great buy low trade candidate later in the year. Abdominal strains affects the core of the athlete, which in terms will negatively affect his power numbers, and even the ability to swing the bat. If you think about the core of a hitter and the torque they put on their midsection while swinging, any discomfort is going to affect their swing, power avg. But as he heals throughout the year, he could be in for a monster 2nd half.
Right, but I would need someone for the first half also. Someone grabbed him before me in the 9th round, so I got Konerko and later Ishikawa. I think their full-year totals should match Penas.
thanks for the report!
