Welcome to the Majors: 4/8/08

Clay Timpner was the only player to make his debut last night. He pinch hit and struck out in his only at-bat and then continued on in the outfield. Timpner bat just over .300 in AAA last year for the Giants. He doesn’t appear to have much power, but his OBP of .361 was pretty good. Honestly, I had a bit of trouble finding information on Timpner except that he still has a strong following at the University of Central Florida, and Baseball America thought he was one of the best defensive outfield prospects way back in 2005.
