DateQuestionAnswer
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What happened to Chris Young (Ari) this year? Will A.J. Pollock and Adam Eaton earn some PT this year?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
Hi Tommy, thanks for the question. I don't think Young ever recovered from his early-season injury. He got off to that great start, then missed a bunch of time, and wasn't right the rest of the year. Seems like the Diamondbacks sold low there, but they know more about their player than I do. Pollock and Eaton are logical candidates to soak up some of his at-bats in 2013. Neither projects as a star but both are as ready as they'll ever be. (Geoff Young)
