- Benjamin Hawkins (.272/.365/.338; 9 HR, 40 RBI; 34/51 SB; .977 Fldg %)
Hawkins is a “bridge” player. He’s got good range and a good glove, but below average arm. He makes good contact, without much power. He’s better against LHP than RHP. He’s got a decent eye. He’s got above average speed to combine with solid baserunning abilities. He’s not going to be anybody’s future, but could definitely help them this season.
- Cliff Perry (.307/.396/.513; 16 HR, 60 RBI; .974 Fldg %**AAA)
A poor defender, Perry could provide an offensive spark off the bench for those who are looking for it. He’s got decent power and drives the ball decently. He’s got a decent eye. He will strike out a fair amount. He’s got average speed to go along with an average baserunning IQ. He’s not a real answer to anybody’s 2B woes.
- Joaquin Polonia (.301/.379/.390; 6 HR, 76 RBI; 57/64 SB; .979 Fldg %**AAA)
Polonia has decent range and a decent glove, but a very weak arm. He makes good contact, while being utterly average at driving the ball. He’d be more of a force if his eye was above average. He’s got really good speed. He’s durable and is not a health concern.
hurricane384’s take: Not a good crop, Hawkins is a likely bench piece, while the rest are probably minor league filler.
