Do you think that Hummel and Harris would be a big defensive liabilty up the middle for us? Better or Worse than a Durham and Choice/Graffy?

Former first rounder Jason Dellaero. He pitches in releif, and has been getting work in no particular schedule as far as I have been able to tell.

Randar68, I didn't know Crede, Hummell and Harris were all playing on the same team. Does that mean Hummell was playing SS? I remember hearing Hummell wasn't too good defensively at short. Has he made any progress, can he make it to the bigs at shortstop?

Okay, I went to the glossary, and it's not there. Who's Salad Shooter?

Well, since the day he was drafted, it's been thought Hummel would be a 2B by the time he got to the majors. I don't think he has the power for third, although he has a sweet gap swing that might develop it in the future. In AA, Hummel was first tried at SS and committed a crap-load of errors in a very short time. They moved him to 2B to eventually take over for Ray. There, he was being compared to a Jeff Kent-type player.

However, when we got Harris in the Singleton trade and realized he was never going to cut it at CF in the future, both the organization and Hummel were eager to try him back at SS. In AAA this year, they've taken a Jack Wilson-like approach: "Take as much IF practice and concentrate on it as much as you can. Don't worry about the hitting, we know you can hit, it will come around." Basically, Sox brass wanted to see if he would be able to cut it defensively at SS. So far so good. I think he will have limited range there, he's 6'2" and not the quickest guy ever. However, he has good instincts and an arm a little above average for SS. If he can provide steady and solid defense, great. I would project him as the type of hitter that would be about a .280-10-70 guy with an OBP around .380. As he matures, he will develop more power, but he will never be an A-ROD type power hitter.

On CHarlotte, they have LTP in CF, Crede at 3B, Hummel at SS, and Harris at 2B. Lee Evans plays DH, 1B, a little OF I thik and catches a little. If Mario Valenzuela ever gets healthy, he will likely also be in Charlotte. Not to mention Jon Rauch...but the rest of their staff blows. Mendoza, Porzio's been starting, Parque...

Mario Venezuela is out of the year with a torn elbow. I believe he had surgery already.
