"Almost 90 percent of his plate appearances this season have come in the 8-hole, and batting eighth basically means the brakes are on, according to Brewers manager Ken Macha.
'He hits in front of the pitcher right now,' said Macha. 'So if he's on first with nobody out or one out, the pitcher is bunting. If he's on with two outs, I don't want him running and making the last out, leaving us with the pitcher leading off.'"
with Gomez on the DL, maybe they can let this kid actually get some AB in the 2 spot?
ive been going through multiple SS with both Rollins(SS) and ECabrera(MI) on the DL. Escobar just cleared waivers and im thinking about picking him up, but im currently using Clint Barmes who is actually doing better than Escobar.
