Carlos Pena

Postby oldmanbean » Sat Mar 28, 2009 10:47 am

Supposedly his surgery was succesful, but he has been looking "weak" to me. Anybody have any inside info here? i was going to use my 4th pick on him as my starting 1B, but now I am unsure.

thanks!

Mar 27 1B Carlos Pena (abdominal surgery) has shown no signs of being limited either in the field or when swinging at the plate.

probably a conditioning issue, maybe starting off slow should go .240-.250 30-35 hrs


Help with mine?

I did a little more research on Pena. He had abdominal surgery in January, and is probably not 100%. 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!

Pena will get his numbers. I like the pick of Konerko. I think this guy has stuff left in him. I don't see him as much of a downgrade from Pena. I only hope he can up up the order a little:

Wise,Getz,Quentin,Thome,Dye,Konerko,AJ....
