• Betemit & Rasner 2009

    Even though Wilson Betemit and Darrell Rasner are now off the team, I did have forecasts for them done and in queue. So, here they are, for what it’s worth – albeit that they’re both ex-Yankees now…

    Wilson Betemit:

    His role on the Yankees should be diminished if New York finds a first baseman for 2009 that does not require a defensive caddy. As a switch-hitter, Betemit offers no value against left-handed pitching. Defensively, he’s limited as a middle infielder. The career of this former prospect is heading in the wrong direction.

    Darrell Rasner:

    Rasner’s skill level, according to his production, is that of a “Four-A” pitcher: Too good for Triple-A and not good enough for the bigs. While still young, the clock is ticking for Rasner in terms of the number of chances to disprove this label. He should only get another big league chance if he’s needed to replace an injured pitcher.
