hopefully he sees the field at least a little bit this year otherwise he will only be good for the UTL spot which will limit some of his appeal and hurt roster flexibility

They have a 2 game series in Colorado coming up at the beginning of July, so that should be at least 1 more there.  I have a hard time believing they will sit him in both games even though Springer is back.  Then they have another 3 game series in St. Louis near the end of the month, so that should be a couple more there.  He already has 2 from their series last week in Cincinnatti, so the interleague series should get him enough starts to help him retain the OF eligibility for next season.

Did you just say Yordong gets to play in coors next week? Where is that Southpark randy at the computer meme.

That’s 7 total starts in OF best case scenario with interleague games. Going to need 20 to retain LF eligibility for next season. Needs to start 13 more somehow.

It could happen I suppose, but that's a bit high for eligibility requirements, so in a way if it doesn't happen it's mainly because of the ridiculously high eligibility requirements.

Still, while he may not have it for you to start the season, I could see him getting enough during next season to regain it since he'll be up all season.  With him being a part of the team from the start, I can see them giving him the occasional start in the OF.  Maybe not quite as often as what Boston does with J.D., but still a similar scenario.

Forgot to put this in my other post, but anyways, yes indeed.  Even if he only plays in one of the two games, that's a drool worthy scenario.  I'll let somebody else do the work for the meme though. 😀

Any word if he’s starting? 

Lineups aren't out yet since they don't start for a little over 4 hours.  Should know within an hour or so...

Tough lefty matchup as well. I'm glad he's sitting tonight. Rest up brother. See ya tomorrow

 

A lefty with a 5.11 ERA isn't tough, and he handles lefties just as well as righties.  Kikuchi has been a major bust.  It's not exactly a great thing he's sitting tonight at all, but in the end, what matters is that his knee injury isn't anything that will hold him out for long.

I know he hits lefties....just thinking that might be the thought process here. I didn't realize he has been so bad though.

15 career games and they’re already intentionally walking him. 

ThAts insane.  Although he has to get better protection than Todd White.  I’m thinking it’ll usually be Brantley or Correa.  Hitting cleanup as a 21 year old in baseballs best lineup is nuts.
