Alright, the infield has been previewed and now we turn our eyes to the outfield where we'll find John Mayberry playing LF.
We're going to be seeing a lot of John Mayberry this season in left field and at first base. Some baseball analysts think he's best suited for a platoon situation, because of his struggles against right-handed pitching (.236/.762), but I think given the chance he'll do just fine. The batting average will be low, the strikeouts will be high, but he'll produce a decent OPS with some power and knock in some runs while playing adequate defense (at both positions). He's a cheaper upgrade over Ibanez, that much seems a given. Let's remember he is in his age 28 season, which is generally the "prime" year of many batters.
John Mayberry/LF - 136 G, .251/.795, 61 R, 23 DBL, 20 HR, 72 RBI, 13 SB.
Over or under?
