First, the 26-year old is traded last year from his original team (St. Louis) to San Diego. Now, so far this season he's went to the Dodgers, then the Royals and now DFA'd again.
That's what, four teams in one season and one off-season?
He was injured and on the DL for most of last season, but hit .278, for AAA-Memphis in 2013 (442 at-bats).
2B-SS-OF Ben Zobrist is on the trade blocks. He has one-year and $7.5mil left on his contract and could easily be the guy that Sandy Alderson has been waiting out for this off-season (I make no recommendation here… lately my boat’s been taking on too much water and I just throw these names out there for of you to discuss. I back them with cola, hard stats that I can’t fuck up) Scout rate his shortstop, second base, and corner defense somewhere from “adequate to exceptional” which should better than anything the 2015 Mets are throwing out there on either middle infield positions..
