He actually has decent athleticism considering how big he is and he might be usable in park with a small defensive OF (LF in Fenway, RF in MN, LF in HOU, etc...). But Petco is big everywhere.
I wouldn't expect him up with the Padres for any significant time this year due to Adrian Gonzalez. But Adrian is only signed thru 2011 so this offseason might be time for them to consider trading him for what should be a substantial return.
Unless it's a dynasty I think you can drop him. He's not even worth it in standard keepers (keep 6-12 MLB players).
I saw him play in the minors one game sitting 2 rows behind the dugout, that height and weight listing is a little conservative. He looks to be much closer to 290-300lbs. He is just massive.
