He seems like he can be effective. Could be a good piece for a contending team.

When are they gonna make space for Flores? 21 game hitting streak in AAA & they need him much more now than Tejada.

his shortstop defense is still a huge question mark, but I’m all for giving him regular ABs to see if he could be slotted at second for a potential Murphy trade (I also don’t want to trade Murphy unless we get pieces that can help next year)
