Default Jose Rondon

What do you think of him?

I see a good major league utilityman. He has similar minor league batting numbers to Yolmer, but more power. Because of his very strong arm he is perhaps a more natural fit to cover third base until our long-term third baseman arrives.

As a shortstop he is similar to Anderson but with less speed.

He is much better than Leury offensively and, I suspect, better at short or third. Sanchez is our best glove at second.

More importantly, Rondon is almost two years younger than Yolmer and three younger than Leury. Since we no longer need Leury as a backup outfielder, I think Rondon takes his spot next season.
