Is that in the OF? What if he's playing 1B?
Positive UZR actually but it's only a 70-inning sample size. Can't imagine someone who's that bad in the OF would be a positive contribution at any position, even 1B, like Dunn, whose fielding is worse at 1B than in the OF. There's going to be a lot of hard grounders to field, and Hawpe's major damage in the OF is reaction time and good routes. His only strength is his plus arm, which is barely a factor at 1B.
