if AE struggles this spring, that they eat this last $18MM for the roster slot. It was a shame that he got that ugly injury last year at this time, as he was killing it, and going to start in one of the corners to open last season. He also finished the previous year hotter than hell. His value was as high as it has been for 5yrs just a year ago. Finally 100% healthy, this spring is huge for him. It's going to be fun to see how he does.
Today (vs a LHP) he stepped into it and drove the ball the other way to defeat that shift for a base hit. His 2nd AB, he also went the other way and drove a ball to the LC gap that was caught but he got all of it. Sure, just the start of ST, and only 2 AB's but they were positive.
Rob Segedin ,Alex Verdugo went yard, and Cody Bellinger hit one out of the park that might still be going lol.. All three HR"s were jolts!
As expected.. Chris Hatcher enters game, 1st pitch hits the batter, and the 2nd batter takes him yard.. same ol f'n Hatcher!
