Saladino actually managed to be WORSE last year in 253 AB's than Arcia has been so far this year, amazingly, with a .484 OPS. I love that he's been productive in his time here so far, but he's not even a stop-gap solution if Arcia doesn't figure it out offensively.

Wonder if there is a Jarry Hairston Jr. type guy to acquire this deadline if Arcia continues to stink up the joint? Cheap guy who can give us offense for a few months.

There's not a lot but you might be able to get like a Freddy Galvis or a Miguel Rojas (probably more expensive with a few years of team control). Neither of them are good but they're upgrades over Arcia currently.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Miguel Rojas is also having a career year already hitting 7x more HRs than he has ever done so in a season before. Actually has almost doubled his career total.

Probably a hard one to pry away at this point unless you pony up and bet on his improvements.

Why does Tyler Saladino say hello? If we've come to the conclusion that he's our 2B or SS answer based on 17 ABs, we are screwed.

I think Tyler is just thrilled to be in the big leagues - especially after posting a .484 OPS last year.

Let's hope he continues his success.

Saladino is this year's Sogard. I dont believe it will last but let's let it ride for as long as we can. Arcia needs a good kick in the ....

Last season was an outlier for Saladino, and was the result of the White Sox taking away the leg kick in his swing. When the Brewers picked him up, they put the leg kick back in.

Saladino's 2016 season, when he had an OPS over 700 at age 26, is probably an accurate look of his offensive ability. He's also a tremendous defender, and more than worthy of being a MLB utility player.

If the Brewers decide they need a second baseman, and if they go for a rental at that spot, there are some potential options out there, depending on which teams stay in the hunt, etc.

Free agents at season's end ....

Asdrubal Cabrera
Brian Dozier
DJ Lemahieu
Jed Lowrie

Some of the teams those players are on are likely to at least be on the fringe of the race at the deadline, and it's possible a couple of them are willing to make a qualifying offer and either keep their player or get the draft pick for losing them, but at least there some solid maybes at that position.

Jonathan Villar:

.279/.348/.426 .774 OPS


Good luck improving on that or even feeling the need to. The power has been there the last month and his BA/OBP split has ended up way closer to what I think Villar is actually capable of.

Those aren't his numbers. Not sure where you are getting that. He's at. 280/.331/.387/.718

Maybe those were May stats a couple days ago. Currently in May he's rocking over 800 OPS, and right now he's probably playing the best he has since 2016.

Also, how many times over the last 2 weeks have you thought "what the heck are you doing Villar?!?" during a game? I can't recall him making a complete blunder lately.

I think this is a good point. While I don't believe the Brewers told him to revert to his leg kick, I am sure Saladino wasn't happy with his teams insistence on removing the leg kick and the subsequent performance drop. When he changed teams he felt he could return to what he felt comfortable with. Teams want players who will take suggestions and adjust their approach, but teams should also want players to communicate back whether they feel comfortable with the new approach (especially when performance tanks).

Villar’s last 28 days. Don’t know how I left that out.

Regarding the lack of blunders mentioned by someone else I think the Brewers have changed something. I think before they encouraged him to be wrecklessly aggressive and now he is strictly told to follow the signs he gets.

His defense has actually been pleasantly good. Even Fangraphs has him positive on defense.
