    Looks like a good little outfielder my Astros should snag. Decent average, walks in AAA. He is 28 but looks better then a few on the 40 man.

      He really isn’t a bad 4th outfielder.

      Given Crane’s M.O. I’m sure he’ll consider it. Think Gillespie is destined to be a perpetual AAAA player though, unfortunately.

    I just looked at Jacobs’ minor league stats for the past two seasons. He *walked* some! That’s new.
