I don't think it's lacking, it's adequate. He brings a bit more robust offensive profile to the table than Chang that might though, so it's probably a break even proposition. But we're also only talking about a few weeks in which he'd be sharing MI duties with Kike and Arroyo. If Chang isn't back in a short time, there's still Mondesi and Story getting closer and closer. At least one of them ought to be ready by Memorial Day or so. It might not be worth the cost for what might be a minor upgrade at best over what Goodrum (or Hamilton or Valdez) can bring.I was under the impression the glove is lacking at SS, but I'm happy to be proven wrong. The guy does have a .524 OBP in Worcester -- 22 walks in 63 PA.
