Thoughts on this? Green in CF?? Oh my! Triples galore!!!
Diamondbacks designated outfielder Jose Cruz Jr. for assignment.
Just a bad move. Cruz, who has a 786 OPS this season, was the best center fielder on Arizona's roster, no matter what Bob Melvin thought. Putting Shawn Green in center and Chad Tracy in right is going to hurt an already shaky outfield defense. Conor Jackson better be ready to hit immediately, because he'll be another downgrade defensively. Jackson is a better hitter than Carlos Quentin right now, but if the Diamondbacks felt they had to do something, bringing up Quentin probably would have been the better idea. The defense would have suffered less. Jul. 27 - 6:42 pm et
