With other receivers from his draft class landing lucrative deals, the Giants star is out to prove he deserves a long-term contract.
The star receiver ran smoothly and without a limp before spending the rest of practice watching from the sideline.
Alex Anzalone Jersey He can’t fully compete yet, [but] he gets a chance to see it, Shurmur said. And there is a lot to be learned by watching. It’s good to have him here.
The only notable Giants player who did not attend Monday’s voluntary OTA was veteran defensive tackle Damon Harrison. Shurmur said Harrison has been at the facility some this offseason and he knew why Harrison wasn’t there this week.
Detlef Schrempf Elite Jersey Anyway, the impressive thing with that swing was staying back on the breaking ball from the left side of the plate. The switch-hitting Albies always has been much better from the right side. In the minors last year, he had a .956 OPS from the right side and .730 from the left side. He’s crushed lefties so far in 2018 with a .407 average and five home runs in 54 at-bats. But from the left side he’s now at a Joe Mullen Womens Jersey respectable .242/.301/.503.
So the question of the moment: Which young second baseman do you like the most? You know, if you had to choose one or your dog would run away, or if you’re starting a team from scratch and can pick only one, or just because it’s a fun question to contemplate. Torres is just 25 days older, so we’re talking two 21-year-olds who are going to make a lot of All-Star teams in their careers.
Since I love my dogs, I’ll make a choice and go with Torres. Two things I like from him so far: He has a little more patient approach than Albies and I think that eventually turns into higher OBPs, and his defense looks great at second base (plus-5 defensive runs saved already). When I was in Yankee camp in spring training, the team raved about his hands and instincts on defense, plus his arm strength. He can play shortstop, and he’s at second base only because the Yankees have Didi Gregorius, but Torres could eventually end up back at shortstop. For now, we have a great debate brewing. Who do you have?
