AJ Reed - 1B HOU


Recommended Posts

Assuming he's not overmatched in the PCL, I really think he'll be up the day after the Super-Two deadline, whenever that may be. I think White will be serviceable for eight or so weeks to let Reed marinate and gain confidence.

Pulled hammy = biggest bust of the year Only on rotoworld.....

What a convincing argument.

@crookedmacs not sure of your preference.  But if Reed gets called up when you say.  A lot of dudes will be throwing themselves at you.  Are you ready for that?

Was looking forward to seeing my first Reed AB live in this pre season game. 1st hit, double off Harvey, problem is White hit a double before him...but not a huge problem.

With Gausman and Conforto dealing with injuries, I expected Reed to pull a hammy or something

3 drafts so far, ended up with all of them in 2. We're doing it. Gausman is even cheaper now.

FTR, this shouldn't come as a surprise. White isn't anything but a placeholder. This was a good write up of situation earlier this month:

"It seems pretty likely that the team declined to pursue a veteran alternative this winter because they wanted to leave room for Reed, and its widely assumed that hell be taking a spot in the line-up as soon as he proves hes ready for a job, regardless of what Singleton or Gattis are doing. But because he only has a half season of Double-A ball under his belt, and no time in Triple-A, it seems certain that the team will send him to the minors to begin the year, letting him get a bit more seasoning while they wait for at least the service time deadline to pass."

White isn't just a "placeholder". All he's done his entire career is hit, and there are no indications that he won't continue to do so.

Billy Butler is his absolute upside.

Negative glove, so that won't keep him up (unlike a guy like Smoak)

Already 25, so has been older at each stop (22 in rookie ball). For reference, Billy Butler was mashing AA at 21 & 22.

We'll have to agree to disagree here.
