Fangraphs on Sox OF Alejandro De Aza

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ March 18, 2010 12:06 pm


… De Aza certainly isn’t as good as his spring line so far, but he’s a very interesting player. He didn’t play at all in 2008, but he had a decent season in Double-A as a 22-year-old in 2006 and then had an excellent season in Triple-A upon his return in 2009, putting up a 130 wRC+ in 300 PAs. Thanks to this minor league performance, De Aza is projected to be a near average hitter this season. He has a good defensive reputation and is extremely fast. As such, De Aza is probably a +5 or better defender in the corners and near average as a CF, and that’s a conservative estimate. …

Ozzie loves Alejandro:

“I love De Aza. I wish he could play infield,” Guillen said. “He’s playing very well for us. Right now it’s very tough for me to make a decision to lean to somebody I really want because … anything can happen. But I love the way De Aza is playing. We’re going to keep him (in camp) and see what happens at the end of spring training.”

  1. It’s getting near time to DFA Jones and bring De Aza up.
