So maybe he can get enough time at catcher to qualify? Image1000Image

Why would they trade for ELI to play catcher when they got John Buck last yeart in the Beltran deal, and he played great for them...?

I'm sure Tavish or another KC fan will clarify but I think he might play OF in KC because they have Buck and I've read they're pretty high on Huber whom they got from the Mets. He might get a late year callup.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Eli Marrero - OF - KC


Royals acquired outfielder Eli Marrero and cash considerations from the Braves for RHP Jorge Vazquez.

I'm guessing this is just a salary dump to fit into some master scheme John Schuerholz has going.

Maybe Chip moves back to OF and makes room for Marte?
