Were kind of handcuffed at the moment. Garcia shouldn’t play against lefties, Fowler’s hip and Wong’s back. Martinez has been swinging sort of a hot bat when he gets playing time but he’s glove and footwork make him an accident waiting to happen.
I am liking Martinez at first base. His defense there seems better than in the outfield, although that is not saying much as he is a butcher in the outfield. But he actually does okay at first, and his bat might be the best on the team.
We might want to play him every day the rest of the way and see what we’ve got, although Matheny rarely does that.
