Francoeur called up. I have to assume that he’s going to play more than Jordan has the last couple of weeks, but then I assumed that they weren’t going to keep McCann around to catch every fifth day. Francoeur has power, but I’m not optimistic in his ability to post an .300 OBP in the majors. In AA, it was .322, and that was with five intentional walks and five HBP.
Jordan has “chronic knee inflammation”. Half the time, that means “we’ll pay you, but don’t expect to play until roster expansion”. Given that Jordan’s value, so far as it goes, is as an unofficial coach, why not?
