Switch-hitter is very good from left side. Will take a walk and hit the ball to all fields, especially left at Fenway. Tough to strike out. Throw him hard stuff on the hands. Excellent base runner. Not as bad defensively as reputation.
Mr. Streak. When he's hot, it doesn't matter what you throw him; when he's cold, you can tell him what's coming, and he won't hit it. Lazay footwork on defense causes poor throws.
Likes the ball over the plate, so pound him in with sliders and fastballs. Will chase the ball up and away. Adequate defensively.
When healthy, he's the catalyst. The Yogi Berra of today: He hits more pitches out of the strike zone than anyone—and hits them hard. Great range defensively.
Has power to all fields. Another LF lefthanded batter who takes advantage of leftfield at Fenway. Can get him out with hard stuff away. Made himself into an adequate defensive Player.
Loves the fastball, and he'll chase the high one. Breaking stuff gives him trouble.
Switch-hitter who's more powerful from the left side. Likes the ball down and in. Will chase the ball up. Defensively, he moves his feet well and throws well.
Very good outfielder in center or right. Plays little ball well, bunting and moving runners. You can knock the bat out of his hands with fastballs.
Average player who improved plate coverage this year. Struggles with high fastballs because he doesn't have the bat speed to catch up to them. Average fielder.
