Josh Rutledge - Grab him

Postby BigZ38 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:51 am

23 year old shortstop for the Rockies. Has a homer in 4 straight games. Hitting in the #2 spot, and likely to play 2B when Tulo returns.

Has has some solid numbers in the minors, and batting in the two spot in that lineup with MI flexibility, potential to be a difference maker down the stretch.

I had him for a brief day, he hits a HR. But Zimmerman goes down and I drop Rutledge for Middlebrooks as insurance (for some reason someone dropped him)...and now I'm frantically hoping Rutledge clears waivers so I can trade away Jimmy Rollins for some pitching help...

In competitive leagues, this guy is long gone.

Picked him up on July 18th and haven't been disappointed at all. My bats have really been playing well lately since my lineup was infused with Rizzo and Rutledge. Got Dom Brown who just came up and Gyorko in the wings. I think it's a youth movement on my team. :*)

I came on here to post about this guy...he's been filling in nicely for Tulow. Is Rutledge for real?

He's not going to maintain the 0.379 BABIP & his walk rate isn't very good (3.7% in AAA & just 2.7% in MLB). He's been strikeout out less than 20% though and has a good LD%. Playing in Coors I could see him being a 0.280-0.300 guy with 20/20 ability.

With 2B/SS eligibility, probably solid run production hitting in the two spot, sign me up 100x over for that stat line.

That's keeper level. I'd love to see that. He reminds me of the unheralded prospect like when david Wright came up who plays better than his tools. Not great speed, but smart enough to steal bases. I think more 270 15 15, but I'll take that, too.
