Oscar Mercado 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

I think his lineup spot can be in flux, but if you believe he will produce, then you should also believe that he will work his way to the #2 spot (or maybe leadoff?).

Reminds me of another Cleveland OFer....Kenny Lofton....anyone?


Can’t say I agree with that comparison.

Ya, I would say Marte is the better comparison there.  The power spiked a bit last season, but the speed is real.  I would think 12-15hrs (possibly a few more) and 30-35sb (possibly more if Francona gives him the green light) is realistic.  Could also be a good source of runs if he hits 1 or 2 in that order for the whole season.

Who cares where a batter hits.  Things can change quickly.  Doesn't mean he has to bat 9th all season long.

 

I agree but in a short season its tough. Francona seems committed to his 1-2-3. Its not something you drop the guy over but it hurts him somewhat.

This guy stinks.

He doesn't stink, but he's in a slump and hard to break a slump when benched so often.

Really hard to hang onto this guy in a short-season redraft.  I may have to cut bait on the next waiver run if he doesn't have a decent game or two in the next couple of days.
