Hitter Update 3/26

Postby UMTerp29 » Wed Mar 26, 2003 2:05 pm

Sorry, I haven't had a chance to update in awhile. The O's stink, so you're not missing much though.

Jack Cust was optioned to AAA Ottawa and will start the season there. The move cements Surhoff's place in the starting lineup, most likely as the starting left fielder.

Hairston has continued his strong spring, winning the leadoff job. He is currently batting .365 with 4 sb's and 12 runs. He may be a cheap late round 2B bench pick, who could suprise and steal 30.

Hargrove has said that Fordyce will get more PT this year, cutting into Gil's time. Gil started 122 games last year, Fordyce 39. Neither player is a good option for your fantasy team.

Segui is nursing a fractured thumb and will miss the first few weeks of the season. The opeing day lineup should look like this:

Disappointing about Cust, but I guess it was to be expected... He'll be back. :-)
