I can’t imagine Franco signing to be the lesser end of a platoon. I could be wrong but I’d think he’d want more playing time than that.


Possibly, although the teams that have playing time are mostly trash, and even then have lefties that have been about as good as Shaw (Ruiz for BAL, McMahon for COL, etc). You are right that Franco might hope for better opportunity than splitting with Shaw.

Between the 2 I recommended, Gyorko makes more sense

Between Franco and Gyorko as a final 3B/1B piece, Gyorko makes more sense from a splits, fielding, familiarity, and probably financial standpoint.

If Gyorko could play an OF spot, he’d make some sense. I doubt Hiura leaves the field much so just not much for at bats at 1B.

Considering how little pop vs LHP there is, having one of Arcia and Robertson with Gyorko makes more sense than not having Gyorko and keeping both Arcia and Robertson. They just seem redundant. 2 weak hitting utility players isn’t necessary. Getting another RHB who can hit lefties, specifically at 3B, is a lot more valuable than a 2nd utility.

If they are looking for right-handed pop, Green probably gets that call this season.

I think we'll see Garcia in the lineup against LHP. That doesn't mean he'll end the game. But his career OPS vs. LHP is .812. Bradley's is .685.

The guy who nobody mentions as having a shot at the opening day roster, Pablo Reyes, has worn out LH pitching in a small major league sample of 80 ABs. He's hit .288/.337/.538 with 4 of his 5 career HR against lefties.

I would absolutely rather have Pablo Reyes on our bench instead of Arcia.
