Juan Encarnacion?

Postby Brownie » Sat Mar 29, 2003 9:11 pm

What kind of year will this guy have in Florida? Will it be better, worse or more of the same? I'm being offered a trade with him in it, and can't decide how good (or not-so-good) he'll be?

Look for similar stats:

.275 AVG, 75 RBI - 20/20

Check out what the Marlins hitting coach said about him (this is from Peter Gammons' column):

"Look for him to have a banner, MVP kind of year. I'll stake my reputation on it. I think he can put up some unbelievable numbers. I'd be surprised if he's not in the high 30's in homers, hits over .300 and goes well over 100 RBI."

Now of course that's a bit of a stretch, especially in Florida's park, but I'm guessing he will improve over last season numbers, especially if he continues his spring training performance into the regular season. Batting after Pudge, Lee, and Lowell should give him the RBI opportunities. If I had to guess I'd say .280-25-90 with 25-30SB and 75ish runs. If he does well the first month or so I'd really like to see him bat 3rd after Castillo and Pierre. He'd get a ton of RBI opportunities with those speedsters on base, then a ton of runs with Pudge, Lee, and Lowell after him.

I would think that Juan Encarnacion would just about equal his numbers from last year. He might even improve slighty.

I wouldn't hold my breath. He has great tools but cannot put it together.

I really like Encarnacion, but he's one of those fantasy players that's been added and dropped from teams way too much because he's so streaky. He's been all potential up to this point, but now he's gotten enough steady playing time to be called a seasoned player, so it's time for him to do something if he's going to. He did show signs last year of becoming a star player in the league though.
