"Frandsen, 28, has big league experience at third, short, first and both corner outfield positions, but he has played more games at second than at any other position. He hit .250/.294/.319 in 173 plate appearances for the Angels last year."

Now there's the big signing we all thought was coming!

'Tis a youth movement.

We could field an entire team of fringe infielders at this point if we had to.

Frandsen's minor league numbers look pretty good at first sniff, but I'm guessing that 1) he was too old for each level and 2) his numbers are inflated by playing in the PCL. Honestly I don't know much about him. If I had to guess, he'll go directly to AAA.

The record will reflect that, at 3:57 p.m. PST, I posted that we should sign Kevin Frandsen.

At 4:20 p.m. PST, the MLBTR article reported the signing.

I'm out-performing DPatrone's source.

Ok the first line on MLBTR says this; I just missed it.

Insurance policy in case Castillo is terrible?

krukker: His minor league numbers are clearly inflated, but he was still a Top 10 guy in the Giants' system for a couple years. Of course, that was back when their minor league system was terrible but the Giants sure did hype him quite a bit when he got called up.

I do think he's better than Mini-Mart and Orr, although it sounds like he won't get an immediate chance to earn his way onto the roster.

Castillo makes one "your momma" joke in the clubhouse and look what happens.

bap: I guess there's still a slight chance of upside then. Maybe he's a late bloomer. Really no down side to this signing, because the only way he'll see the big club is if he hits his way onto the team (or the injury bug bites some more).

Yo, new thread
