No power, low average, nice hair, injury-prone, can't even bunt.
What is all the fuss about this guy? What's wrong about making him prove himself at AAA? Buck-lovers are probably the same who were Barton-lovers last year. Barton is now hitting .200 with no power at Sacramento. What is the facination with corner infieleders and corner outfielders with zero power?
For hitters with potential , power doesn't develop when facing good major league pitchers. For some guys power-hitting comes with the confidence of abusing lesser hurlers. McGwire hit most of his HRs against no-name middle relievers, inexperienced young starters and old retreads. Let young guys practice at AAA and bring them up when they are ready. I get no pleasure watching impotent performance. There is no place for limp bats in the majors.
