yes he does. I think most of his errors are of the fielding variety.

which is understandable for a 22 year old youngster, not a 26 year old who's been around for a few years.

we have high hopes for desmond/kobernus/espinosa

espinosa had a great day in the field and a few good long at bats and walked in his last AB.

Espinosa looked more than Major League ready in the field. He had such a strong arm and was fluid going after the ball... Batting he looked solid but he was still a little behind.
