The former is hitting .296/.369/.432 while the later is hitting .300/.353/.436 at Norfolk. Neither of them project to be more than utility players, but they are hitting well and deserve a shot if Ryan Flaherty returns to his pre-streak ways.
WHAT? Do you work at the NSA?
I was just thinking about both of those guys last night and wondering if they'd get a chance this year.
With that being said IMO it would be a bad idea to exchange either of them for Flaherty. Yes; he's hitting below the Mendoza Line, but his defense has been plus and I value that as about 200 OPS
points. Let's be honest, even if we did improve 2B it wouldn't address our real problems - STARTING PITCHING.
