Is that in the OF? What if he's playing 1B?

Positive UZR actually but it's only a 70-inning sample size. Can't imagine someone who's that bad in the OF would be a positive contribution at any position, even 1B, like Dunn, whose fielding is worse at 1B than in the OF. There's going to be a lot of hard grounders to field, and Hawpe's major damage in the OF is reaction time and good routes. His only strength is his plus arm, which is barely a factor at 1B.

Putting defensive metrics aside, I like it for the Padres. They definitely needed to fill the Grand Canyon-sized hole at 1B with a solid bat, and they do so with Hawpe.

But he will be ready? I was VERY high on Mr. Blanks coming into the 2010 season, then his last name became a reality on my stat lines...

Hawpe is a solid bat? Dude, has a career 95 OPS+ on the road. I don't know how well Petco is going to treat him.
