At the very least I think he'll make the roster someday. He could be like the Dyson guy for the Royals. He may only hover around the Mendoza line, but he is definitely useful to a team. Speed kills and if we're building a small ball team, he'd have an even bigger role in the NL than Dyson has for the Royals in the AL.
I don't think we're building a small ball team, I think we're just using what little we have which happens to be conducive to small ball. Anybody know what kind of arm Perez has? Basically I see a Nyjer like player but a better defender and base stealer.
