Thoughts on this guy? With the Yankees shopping Nady and Swisher, it seems like he's the favorite to land the CF job. He and Melky will likely compete in ST, but from what I've read (and what I saw of Melky last year), it's Gardner's job to lose. He was pretty awful with the bat during is ML stint last year, but could he be a decent player with regular playing time?
2005 (A-): .284/.377/.376
2006 (A+ and AA): .298/.395/.370
2007 (AA and AAA): .281/.369/.378
2008 (AAA): .296/.414/.422
He's also swiped 153 bags in the minors and got caught 31 times for a 83% success rate. He stole 13 of 14 in his 42 games in the majors last year. He's shown an ability to walk, drawing 70 in 94 games last year in AAA.
From a fantasy perspective, maybe a decent option for cheap steals and possibly runs?
