Austin Rei was our 3rd round pick in the 2015 draft and was thought of as one of the best catchers in the draft. Josh Ockimey is the 1st baseman and he has probably the most offensive potential in that lineup.
If he continues his trend of 4 inning stints, then he finishes today with 4ip 7ks 0bb and only 1 hit allowed. That hit was promptly taken care of with a double play.
Seriously though, how hyped am I allowed to be with this kid?
He's striking out 32% of the time, and from the games I've watched it looks like good off speed pitches are beating him. He's mostly splitting DH/3B duties with Devers and he looks pretty good at third with his glove however.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
