New Britain callups

Rate this Entry
With New Britain likely headed toward the playoffs, we may not see some prospects early in September. Hermsen and Benson would be probables, but I am especially eager to see Hicks and Arcia. With his five hits on Wednesday, Hicks has moved to the top ten in league OPS, and most of the others on the list are 1B or DH. Most importantly, his left-handed productivity has caught up with his right-handed productivity this summer. Meanwhile, Arcia would be leading the league in both BA and OPS if he had qualifying plate appearances.

    How close is Arcia to qualifying?

    Since he started at Fort Meyers and spent some time on DL, he only has 34 games at New Britain while the league leaders are over 85.

    That's a fun team to watch. It would be great for them to get to the playoffs as a team and win a round or two or a championship!

    That OF defense must be fantastic
    Few balls must drop in the gap and no one should run on Arcia's arm. This could be the 2014 OF for the MN twins

    Arcia could get a look. The Twins might bite on Hicks. But anyone else...no, not if they aren't 40-man roster qualified at tis point. No use starting the clock on anyone before you need to, just for an early looksee. Arcia needs to make the team in 4 years...so he's an advance looker.
