Palka's had ~500 PA's in the MLB and his slash line is .223/.285/.449 with a whopping -0.2 bWAR for his career. He can't field, get on base, hit, or run. He can hit a ball far; that's it. He's 27 years old.

People are acting like he hasn't had a chance at the MLB level. He had 500 chances. The guy is a AAAA DH. He doesn't have the ceiling of someone like Moncada and he doesn't have time on his side.

Maybe I'm wrong; maybe he makes a massive adjustment and starts raking, but history suggests it won't happen.
