Chris Nelson is the only one who seems assured of playing time. Brandon Wood is the only one to have ever been a top-5 prospect in all of baseball. Brandon Wood is also the only one to have a career wRC+ of 35 in a substantial sample size. Superficially, Pacheco just looks like a version of Chris Nelson that doesn’t currently have a starting position.
MI eligibility plus a better bat make Nelson my preference over Pacheco (not to mention the playing time that Byron brings up below. If Pacheco gets PT and you need a C, he could be worth a flyer, but I’d rather have Nelson.
