    Default Welcome back, Kotter... errr Gustavo Nunez

    Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight; my goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. -- Psalm 144:1-2

    Gustavo's first year in Lakeland they had his swing so messed up between bunting, slash bunting and hitting and it showed. The next season he was able to drive some balls and got promoted. He is/was awesome in the field. That being said, he is a bit of a head case. He also has poor base running instincts. That being said, he is a better fielder than Cale and a better hitter than Cale. We lose nothing by starting him at AA or AAA this year.

    You are so right, He's his own worst enemy and if he gets mentally into the game, he could be so much improved...still, not sure he's a prospect .

    Obviously not a prospect, just an organizational spot filler.

    Makes it so surprising that he was a Rule-5 pick !

    He was a top 20 prospect in the org, one with a pretty decent combo of defense and speed, before he was left unprotected. I remember that he hit well the year I saw him play for the Whitecaps. If the ankle is healthy, would it be worth the Tigers' time to give him a close look in Spring Training to he if he could be of help at some point this season?

    He's organizational depth at this point.
