Considering that I expect us to be about 8-10 games out on trade deadline day, we might see some youngsters after that. But.......Pache has been shaky this year with Gwinnett, Waters has been wildly inconsistent. They're both striking out at 32-33% rates, we can't have that. Demeritte should get a chance, he's been really good. Arcia has 1900 PA's in the big leagues with a 71 career wRC+. That's not a major league level player, with a pretty decent sample size.
I'm going to be really pissed off if Camargo isn't traded by the deadline. He had two more hits today, he's hitting .310 and his OPS is about .910 but we have no plans and never will have any plans for him. Why we don't move him and get whatever we can in return is beyond me. He still has a career wRC+ of 93 in the big leagues and is an elite defender. Even though he's hit 7 HRs at Gwinnett, he's hitting .310 because he's gone back to hitting line drives and spraying the ball all over the field like he did in 2018. The last two years in the big leagues he was trying to do too much, trying to hit every pitch 800 feet. Nobody can convince me with this nice AAA season he's having and what he's proven he can did in the big leagues that there arent' several teams that would have him starting every day in the big leagues. So move the kid for his sake and take what you can get in return.
I do not understand the thing with Camargo, its like he is our designated AAAA player when we are keeping lesser players on the roster (Almonte is the prime example) We are not giving him a chance. And the thing with Panda - unmentionable - I am not that big of a Heredia fan who is really marginal who has done better than expected
I do not get it with the way we yo yo some guys - Bryse Wilson is another who comes to mind and to think we are regurgitating Touki again this week instead of Wilson or ever Wright whom plenty was invested in - I just do not know or understand. Wilson has shown more at MLB than the other two mentioned.
Why don't we give Demerritte a chance, hey its not like we have a corner of Cooperstown out there in the field.
As for Arcia, cause he can double back and play short and had some 15 HR pop, guess I want to see what he has maybe he might do better and be more mature Looking at 2020 he did have an OPS+ of 95 that is not too bad. That was his best OPS plus yr
I guess Waters and Pache could be worth waiting for another yr, would hate it if Pache cannot cut it and gambling he was ready now- that is one big AA mistake of the off season.
