He stinks.

Great, just what we need, more stinkers.

He does stink, but right now they are lacking bodies in the outfield. And it's probably still too early in the season to trade for somebody halfway decent.

Yep- Hernandez is doing OK at Charlotte- but Mitchell is hitting .158 and Tekotte is hitting .222- and that's it for our AAA outfield-

With stats like that, we'll see what we can get out of him. If not, back on waivers he goes.

Lets give him a shot before we say he stinks...still only 25. Probably won't turn out but you never know.

This is from Sickels from 2012, but a good scouting report:

He's Moises Alou and Ruben Sierra all rolled into one!

I'd have preferred Ruben Sierra even at his current age.

I'd like a big fat Reuben in front of me right now.

Sierra hit .290 in a little over 100 AB's with Toronto last year. I don't know what his upside is but, as with a lot of the Sox waiver moves this year, I don't see the downside so why not take a chance?

If you take a lot of low to no risk gambles and hit on some, you're ahead of the game.

Also, OF Moises Sierra just walked in. He's available for today's game. Will wear No. 25. #WhiteSox (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WhiteSox&src=hash)

Also, an .827 OPS last year in those 100+ at-bats which was 50 points higher than any White Sox player last season. Not a bad fill with Eaton out. If he does well, it would only make Jordan or De Aza (more) expendable.

You teal, but this, of course, is where Dewayne Wise used to show up.

God why are we always in this position?
Our leadoff hitter is at .194 and our #2 is at .077. I don't ever remember seeing someone below .200 my entire life growing up, but now it seems like we always have someone in our starting lineup in the .100s.

Eaton would be leading off if he weren't injured. And the No. 2 position in our lineup was the overall weakest on the team before Beckham came off the disabled list, average-wise and OPS-wise and contact-wise. Going into last season, the Sox signed Keppinger , coming off a .325 season, to hit second, but that didn't work out.

WE're rebuilding and we're missing 2 starting outfielders because of injury. So, yea, we have some bad hitters. Just have to plug through it. No need to use resources to bring any .260 hitters on board.

I saw this dude play in AAA. He was a loggygagger in the field and on the bases, but could drive the ball deep every at-bat. Guess the latter skill didn't translate to the majors.

I saw him a number of times in A ball with the Lugnuts. Went to a bunch of games the year he was in Lansing, and the most memorable thing about him was his name. I think he hit about .230 with no power, though he was 19 at the time.
