If he plays 2-3 times a week vs RHP maybe he’s productive. He’s likely taking Descalso/Bote/Almora ABs away vs RHP, the bar ain’t that high.
Almora and Bote are solid defenders though, which Gonzalez definitely isn't.
Batting 5th, playing RF tonight (over Almora, with Heyward in center). I guess we'll find out soon enough.
Edit: I also have zero problems with David Bote's .289/.364/.500 against RHP in 129 PAs this year.
I didn’t realize Bote was hitting so well vs RHP, damn. CarGo’s presence at least knocks Descalso down in the pecking order to more the LaStella role.
