Doesn't help that he literally dives into balls inside to get HBP. Was bound to happen eventually. 

 

That's his 19th HBP this year... and that doesn't include the ones where it was ruled he didn't get out of the way.

 

Hughie Jennings' record may not be safe after all.

Just read that though he's not playing in the 2nd game, he will be available to pinch hit.

 

So he shouldn't miss time... now just have to hope this doesn't kill his hot streak.

Him getting hit all the time might be an issue when considering whether to draft or acquire him.

Thanks, I,was about to drop him because I need games at OF.  Wasn’t much better on my wire.  I’ll hold him and meet up here tomorrow night to complain about what new way he found to ruin things for me then.

He's off the DL tonight. And umm hitting 8th. I know it's the weak side of his platoon against Hamels but still that's kind of excessive. Anyways OK I won't complain too much just glad he's back.

You mean you expect him to hit ahead of Kevin Plawecki?   Cmon bro.

I don't see him hitting in the upper half anymore. Rosario and McNeil have that locked up now.

He should in the top 5 at the very least against RHP. Otherwise that would be a terrible waste of OBP in a lineup that doesn't have much to spare. Bruce coming back does throw a wrench in it. Bah guess we'll see..

That’s only 2.    He is probably their best lead off hitter.

How is Rosario a better leadoff hitter?

He isn’t.   He had a great 10 day stretch. August 10-19.      17 for 45.    3 walks.  3 steals.          Since then, back to earth.  6 for 30.    1 walk. 2 steals.    He’s their #9 hitter.   Nimmo deserves to bat first vs righties at least.  Probably always.
