Jan Hubbard on Joaquin Arias

New, 16 comments

Jan Hubbard blogs on the Rangers' efforts to have Joaquin Arias play some centerfield.

Hubbard seems to be vastly overrating Arias, though:

If Arias was in another organization, he probably would be in the major leagues right now.

Arias posted a .268/.296/.361 line in AAA. I don't care how good his defense is, a guy with a 657 OPS in AAA isn't probably going to be in the major leagues with any team.

Hubbard says Arias is likely to be dealt this summer, if the Rangers go hunting for pitching.
