Feliz is not that good defensively at 1B.
Snow showed he was the perfect number 2 hitter last season. Hopefully, he’ll keep that up in 3 hole, batting before Bonds and getting a lot of fastballs.
As for Feliz, he will get regular playing time. Starters AB’s.
Alfonzo knows that there is someone waiting in the wings to take over at 3B. So he played winter ball this year, and dropped 20 pounds.
Feliz will spell Alfonzo at 3B, Snow at 1B, and might see some time in the OF. He should be eligible at 3B, SS, and 1B this year for fantasy players.
Also, both Sabean and Alou are high on him. But there just isn’t a set position they can currently give him. Alou thinks he’ll be a 30 HR, 100 RBI, .275 hitter.
But Tavish is right. Right now, Feliz has terrible plate discipline.
