Chris Duffy was just named by the manager to start most of the games for the Pirates as the CF and will be leading off. He has started the last 5 games, including tonight vs. a lefty (he hits left).
He is 25 and seemed to average around .300 with about 30 SB and 10 HR's in the minors.

Thoughts anyone?

Well. I have been able to watch him play live his 3 of his last 5 games and I can tell you that Mac wantsw him to be the guy.

Dont look for a ton from him in this lineup. Lawton inthe #3 hole is just aweful and the pirates don't even have a solid #2 guy.

Once the pirates trade Lawton look for Duffy to get even more playing time.

Well said...I'm thinking Duffy will be in CF for the rest of the year. It's time to go young now that we're almost in the basement.

Supposedly he is not the greatest hitter. He's been doing OK so far, but he doesn't have much power. He is fast and scrappy though. If you're looking to get steals from him, I don't think he's going to steal much - at least with Lloyd still at the helm. He just doesn't have the runners take off very much. No one on this team has the "green light" unlike other teams with players like Figgins, Reyes, Crawford, etc. Everything is called from the bench.

I really wouldn't think about using Duffy in fantasy at this point. This team's going to keep declining, and we just don't score enough runs for him to accumulate runs or steals as a leadoff guy should. :-/
