I sure hope so. Is his velocity back up or what? If his fastball gets going again and he couples it with that nasty curve, he'll be fine.

There’s no chance I chose Engel as anything other than a fourth OF with the way he has looked at the plate every single time I’ve seen him in person. He just looks awful in the box.
Yeah, I think that Leury is destined for a career as a utility player over the long haul, but for now, he's our best option in CF until the Sox acquire/develop somebody better. And in my estimation, that somebody will not be Engel.

Engel can play CF in Charlotte and see if the bat comes around. I don't think it will, but I've been surprised before. He was just completely overmatched at the plate last year. Not fair to him or to the other 24 men on the team to keep running him out there every day to struggle like that when there are other options.

Send Covey and Danish down to AA and don't look at them again until they have an 18+ win season.
