Color me puzzled.
Winn was hitting .213 with the Yankees, that’s why THEY RELEASED HIM.
Jay is arguably a better fielder than Winn.
This one makes no sense to me, save for more influence from the manager. Say what you will about adding a veteran presence, but it only makes sense if you’re not taking at-bats and playing time away from a developing player that should and will figure into a team’s future plans.
Time will tell if this move foretells another, but for now color me not a fan.
Does Mozeliak have the agents for Mike Gallego and Tony Fossas on speed dial?
