As a player, Jenkins gives you hustle, determination and 110%. He doesn't give you great numbers, which is what fantasy baseball is all about, right?
Looking at his lines of the past five years, even with the ball park change, I think it would be folly to anticipate more than .265-20-75. Whether or not that is worth getting in a mixed-league is up to you, though I would think you could find better. Keep in mind that Jenkins has a history of injury and he isn't getting any younger.
That said, if you are a Philly fan, Jenks is a guy worth seeing play ball. Moreover, he will be a great asset to the community. Sadly, these are not numbers in a fantasy baseball league, either.
Plus, landing in Philadelphia, in that bandbox ballpark, Jenkins couldn't have found a better destination. The Phillies are notably thinner in the outfield with Aaron Rowand gone, so Jenkins should see every single right-handed starter the Phillies face in 2008, and in 2007, they saw 110 of them. That could mean as many as 450 plate appearances, and if the Phillies use him right -- read: never against a lefty -- he could really surprise, at least to the level of a strong mixed-league matchups type or National League-only third/fourth outfielder.
