Playing right field and batting eighth – Manuel Margot (Age 25)
The comparisons have started with the mentioning of Dwight Evans and Torii Hunter. The sooth, gliding style in the outfield and an arm that may not be of Evans quality, but is accurate and with a very quick release.
Margot has done reasonably well with his hitting and has demonstrated excellent bat control for a two-year player. Then comes the speed.
Having speed at the bottom of the order adds another dimension to the line-up. Margot has both base stealing and first to third speed.
The right-handed hitting Margot was worth the wait.
