Possible Pick-Ups & Other Stuff
*J.B. Shuck/OF - Angels, can hit and field. Could be great 4th outfielder (.304/.774 minors, .272/.660 MLB).
*Michael Kohn/RP - Angels, 3.67 ERA in 4 seasons, with a strikeout per inning. Not really set-up material, but someone that can be called upon to help keep the score close.
*Troy Patton/RP - Padres, 3.25 ERA over 6 seasons, and a lefty.
*Caleb Gindl/OF - Brewers, possible 4th outfielder (.285/.809 minors, .232/.739 MLB).
Mario Hollands was a pleasant surprise for the 1st half of the season, posting a 3.16 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. The 2nd half has been quite the opposite, as his ERA and more than doubled to 6.89 and his WHIP has gotten worse too (1.66). He exited today's game with shoulder soreness.
Grady Sizemore might make a fine 4th outfielder for the 2015 Phillies, as he's hit well since joining the team (.304/.840 in 45 G with 19 R and 12 RBI).
Ben Revere is doing his best to earn the NL Batting Title, with 3 more hits today he upped his average to .314, which puts him just ahead of Josh Harrison of the Pirates.
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez's MLB debut has to make Amaro feel good...or not. 1 inning pitched, 2 earned runs allowed on 3 hits and 2 walks. Just one outing, but a pitiful outing nonetheless.
