Cord Phelps, 2B-COL: 4-5, 2 2B, RBI, SB, CS
Phelps extended his hitting streak to twelve games yesterday afternoon with this impressive four-hit performance, raising his overall season line to .355/.385/.516 in 14 games for the Clippers. Phelps...struggled once he was called up to the Indians last year, there's no doubt about that. The Stanford product hit just .155/.241/.254 in 71 big league at-bats, and looked overwhelmed at the plate for the most part. The switch hitting infielder is still just 25 though, and the book is far from closed on his major league potential. I still see a potentially valuable, offense-oriented utility infielder down the road here, and best-case scenario could mature into a 2nd-division starter at 2B. He's not a great defender, but can play 2B, 3B and even SS in a pinch. He's even a good enough athlete to appear in LF on a limited basis. Better players than Phelps have struggled in their initial exposure to major league pitching, so those who are writing him off already are a being a bit hasty. I'm not promising future success or saying he's going to make an all-star team down the road or anything, but I still think he has a shot to be a useful bat on a major league team. It might not be for the Indians, as Jason Donald, Lonnie Chisenhall and Jason Kipnis are ahead of Phelps in the infield pecking order, but he could be a useful trade chip with another solid season in AAA.
