Is he worth owning? I hear is going to split time at DH due to injury? Anyone heard anything about him?

Thanks

He had a monster year in AAA and has hit great since coming up. He's currently at .321/.424/.661 and has 6 HR, 12 RBI in 56 at-bats. He's been playing regularly but word in Seattle is that he can't play first very often because of a lingering leg problem. In today's paper, Melvin was quoted as saying Bucky could only play 1B maybe once a week. Now there's talk of having Edgar Martinez try playing 1B so that he can get some at-bats and Bucky can still get his. As long as Bucky keeps on hitting, they should be able to find a spot for him in the lineup. One warning sign, though, is that he's struck out 19 times in 56 at-bats.

I am considering picking him up. I am convinced about his power, but I also could use some average help. He is hitting .320 now, but will that change over the course of the rest of the year? Those Ks do worry me, too.

What was his average in AAA?

i picked him up in one of my dynasty leagues. along with a deep redraft league.

I really like him on my dynasty should take over the DH role is able to play the field come interdivision time. Has the AAA numbers to be legit and if you have seen the guy he is a monster. Very MCGwire built..


As far as the redraft goes. I don't really start him that often. Have spot started him when i see him playing a pitcher or in a park that i might like but thats abotu all.

I am playing him over Overbay after I picked him up today. Those 7 (?) HRs in 75 ABs have really shown me something. THanks for those minor league stats. They help a ton. I am guessing that, based on those, he hits for .280 the rest of the way. Thats not bad considering the power he should bring to your lineup. My only question is whether he will get playing time or not. He has started consistently over the past month or so, so I am guessing that he will. Any seatle fans out there know the answer to the playing time question? Oh, and how old is he?

He'll be 29 on August 30, so he's no spring chicken. As for playing time, it's a question mark. The news here in Seattle is that he's not likely to play everyday at 1B because of his knees, so DH is the ideal spot for him, but Edgar Martinez is going to retire at the end of the year, so they still want to give Edgar a good sending-off, and let him play some. Last night, Edgar was the DH and Bucky played 1B. Manager Bob Melvin has even suggested that Edgar might play a bit at 1B if Bucky's knees don't allow him to play their full-time. They're going to try as much as possible to keep his bat in the lineup but Edgar's presence makes it tougher.

Hahaha, nope. It's just a picture I found on some web site and it's just such a nice, perfectly-shaped, totally-squeezable ass, I had to use it.
