Pirates C/1B

Postby stumpak » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:17 am

Can anyone enlighten me as to what the current Pirates C and 1B plans are? Some sites seems to be indicating that Clement is the starting 1B. Since he will probably also have C eligability in some leagues, he might be a great darkhorse C if he actually will be playing full-time (shades of Craig Wilson 2005 and Brandon Inge last year).

I assumme that Doumit is the starting C under all scenarios?

Catcher is Ryan Doumit. 1B will be Garrett Jones/Jeff Clement. Jones will also be platooning with Ryan Church and Brandon Moss in RF so Clement should see ample playing time. Clement shouldn't see any time catching as they also have Jaramillo still.

Gotta imagine Steve Pearce is in the mix at 1B as well...

I guess but I can't see him being much of a threat

Pearce is pretty far down the depth chart. At 1b, he's behind Clement and G. Jones. In the OF he's behind Jones, Milledge, Church and (probably) Raynor, their Rule 5 pick. It's incredibly unlikely that Pearce will make any sort of impact this year.

Clement with C eligibility on both CBS and Yahoo. Could be a sneaky pick if he gets PT. Perhaps why he has an early ADP of 257 on CBS.

Clement's someone I'll target in a 2 catcher league or even 14+ team one catcher league. There's no reason not to draft him once your other options are Ramon Hernandez, John Baker, or Carlos Ruiz. Much more power upside (20 HR) than those guys. Pearce isn't even going to make the team, and Jones looks to be in RF.
