A former first-round pick who at one time looked destined to be the Jays’ catcher of the future, Arencibia endured a disastrous 2013 season, in which despite hitting 21 home runs he was among the worst offensive and defensive players at his position. His .227 on-base percentage last season was not only the lowest in the majors, but also the fourth-worst in baseball’s modern era (since 1901) for a player with at least 400 plate appearances. He also led all catchers with 13 passed balls and 11 errors. [...]
Asked by the Star to clarify how the two teams’ cultures differ, Arencibia no longer seemed interested in the interview. “Warmer weather,” he deadpanned, followed by: “No poutine.”
I think Arencibia started with expectations too high
Well, it was a hell of a debut.
Hit the 1st pitch of his career for a home run.
Another home run later in the game.
And unfortunately, he's hitting .133 this year :(
MLB.com reporting that Jim Sundberg and Ivan Rodriguez will "represent the Rangers at the draft," whatever that entails.
Typo - .361 for Murphy.
Anyway, it jsut boggles my mind that someone with enough power to hit 20 HR...could have no power.
