That would help fill the void of left handed hitting on this squad.
You would do well to take a second look at this guy. He's more highly regarded than you may think. He has never really had a chance to prove himself at the Big League level.
He's still very young, and he did miss all of 2008.
I can't believe that he could be much worse than Pierre, with more upside.
