It'll be interesting to see how they approach Chisenhall. His lefty splits in the minors are as follows:
Decent pop against southpaws. But those averages and OBPs facing Double and Triple-A pitching are ugly. No reason to believe that'll change at this level. But, he's always hit righties and has a little bit of pop against lefties that prevents him from being completely useless.
I feel like he's supposed to get it, like Bernie said, but I see his ceiling as a platoon player, and 3B platoons aren't exactly commonplace. Plus, he's a minus defender. How much does he have to produce offensively to outhit the frying pan on his hand?
Issue with a guy like Ramirez, or somebody similar, is that he's a one-year stopgap and we aren't rich with minor league 3B. Chisenhall's an important piece of this puzzle, and he only has one season worth of plate appearances, but his holes are very clear.
I'm pretty hard on him. Maybe I should relax my stance. But there's not much about him that screams everyday 3B.
