Would Vazquez be a good pick up for the Pirates farm system?

The guy would probably be hitting 6th or 7th on the Pirates MLB line up…

They call him Alvarez

The guy may have some pop, but a .262/.314 line is not very impressive, especially for a 30 year old. Along with that he had 166 SO and 30 BB. Anyone saying he is a bench option for a club is just not thinking realistically.

 I agree. It’s like teams sign these people to prop up fan support for their AAA teams only, cause they are not going to help the parent club and swing at everything in the minors even.

Boston signed one of these huge types named Mauro Gomez, who looks like weighs 30lbs AT LEAST more than baseball reference has him listed at 6’3 and 230lbs. line of 24HR and 38BB 138K at the age of 27 with 8 years of minor league service and his career stats are just like that.. No plate discipline, hence no prospect status at all. Just takes away AB from the slightest chance Lars Anderson could have helped if AGone were to get injured.

I ask for the thousandth time here.. Why do teams add 15-20 people on their AAA roster exactly like Gomez and Vazquez.. Is it just so the fans at the AAA teams get to see them win, cause it just blocks the REAL talent.

Yes. This.

It’s the power of the NYC media combined with the fever dreams of the Yankee fanbase.

 The Yankee fanbase generally doesn’t like him at all. Just saying.

Steve Pierce isn’t a bad option waiting in the minors either. Will never amount to anything other than a reserve, but he plays the game well.

He would make a good bench player or part time dh.

From potential big league DH to released. Wow, the path one player can take in an offseason.

He was never going to be a big league DH. The Yankees were never really impressed with his numbers, and I can’t imagine even a lackluster offensive team like the A’s would be interested in him to play DH (in the big leagues). Also, I wonder if his release was requested by him so he could catch on with a foreign team for a greater opportunity. He did state earlier that if he didn’t break camp with the big league squad, he wanted out…

There can only be one Pedro Cerrano.

just because the guy posted big number at Triple A mean, he going to be good major league hitter.. He will most likely end up in Japan as from what he said that he doesn’t want to play at Triple A for another team.. All teams got their 25 man roster ready to go.. Chance of him playing in MLB is 0 %… He can be top player in Japan for all anyone cares about..

You are probably right and he’ll probably be loved in either country.
