Espinosa is a HORRIBLE hitter. I trust Desmond more at the plate.
he hasn't taken ownership of 2nd. lombardozzi has earned a chance to get some PT
Heading into today
Espinosa - .233/.320/.414/.734, OPS+ 101
Desmond - .242/.289/.345/.634, OPS+ 75
He has a .100 OPS advantage.
You can have your own opinion on those two... but statistically, you could not be more wrong.
That's not opinion, that's fact.
