He's going to the AFL, right?
"I'll tell you what, he's got some bat speed," said Rafters hitting coach Ever Magallanes, who coaches in the White Sox organization during the regular season. "Strong, strong quick hands … the ball just jumps off his bat … He's got a real natural fluid swing. It's fun to watch his BP."
If Zimmerman can't straighten out his throw to first, Rendon will end up at third- might as well keep getting him reps there
It's not that big of a problem. He nails every type of throw to first except for the ones that he has time for.
to me that's a pretty big problem
No he throws side arm effortlessly. His 3/4 or over the top is giving him trouble due to shoulder injury.
But how often does it happen? He'll throw the ball away once every blue moon. The guy is as lights out at defense as you can be.
I looked at the "Advanced Fielding" stats available at Baseball-reference.com.Ryan makes no errors on catching throws and relatively few fielding errors. He's made only 33 fielding errors in his career.However, in the same time, he has made 80 (eighty) throwing errors. I couldn't find any other 3B who had a similarly lopsided split. Beltre's numbers are 131 fielding and 108 throwing (over a longer time), Wright is 78 and 78. Rolen is 140 and 45. Zimmerman already has 35 more throwing errors than Rolen had in his entire career.
not starting for the second straight game. no word as to why
He started yesterday. It isn't uncommon for players to share time in the AFL.
