  1. For the Syracuse Interesting section, there is also Perez taking ZERO walks during the hitting streak. Imagine how good he cold be if he was merely AVERAGE in accepting free passes.

    1. And that is the problem he, Lombardozzi, AND Kobernus share: a reluctance to take a walk. Making them poor choices for the top of the batting order. And one could conceivably throw Espinosa in there as well. Aggressive hitters who won’t try to get on base any other way.

  2. Sounds like Perez or Kobernus may be coming up if Werth goes on the DL as expected. Nats would need to make an extra move to get Kobernus on the 40 man roster.

    1. Looks like Perez. If you want outfield defense and someone already on the 40-man who isn’t on the DL. He’s it.
