If the Indians looked for more offensive production out of their first baseman, Matt LaPorta’s name would be low on the replacement list. Johnny Damon figures to push Shelly Duncan out of left field, so Duncan would have first crack at any extra playing time at first. Even then, Kotchman is a far superior defender to either player and Manny Acta values defense. Kotchman isn’t going anywhere.
Maybe in a 20-team AL only league sure, but I don’t see any reason to spec add LaPorta right now.
Very similar skill sets, but Campana will sit against lefties, so Dyson will probably get more at-bats. Of course, once Cain returns, Dyson will likely see his playing time diminish, so for the season, Campana is prob better.
Wow, well both Dyson and Byrd have playing time issues when injured players return. Torres is def one of the two since he should get the most at-bats. Raburn is playing himself out of a job, but he’s obviously not this bad, so at least he has the chance of starting most of the rest of the season. So i’d go those 2
