Late June Rosterbation


"... and we knew it was over when the sound man said, I wish we were still in June..."

So of the three holes we had in our offense, we fixed one by installing Tommy LaStella at 2B. Next target: CF. I'm seeing rumors that the Padres are ready to blow up their team. Cameron Maybin would slot nicely into CF in Atlanta, and his contract comes with some control at a reasonable rate:

2015 $7M

2016 $8M

2017 $9M option, 1M buyout

A cheaper alternative involving the Padres would be Chris Denorfia for a platoon. Although he and B.J. Upton are both righthanders, B.J is currently exhibiting a pretty significant reverse split, whereas Denorfia has always had a conventional split (also, he hits better away from Petco). So a platoon: Against LHP, we move Jason Heyward over to CF and Denorfia plays RF. Norf should be a cheap rental since he is a free agent at the end of the season.
