Jumpin’ Cody Ransom is no kid – as he turned age 33 back on February 17th of this year. Last season, in 423 At Bats in Triple-A, Cody had 22 homers along with a BA/OBP/SLG line of .255/.338/.482 (in 116 games). And, in his major league career, to date, Ransom has a BA/OBP/SLG line of .251/.348/.432 in 183 At Bats.
When I look at all this, it makes me want to suggest…if you gave Cody Ransom a full-time job in the big leagues, this season, where he got close to 600 At Bats, it would not shock me to see him hit close to 20 homers with an On Base Average around .330…a season like one David Bell had in 2002 or Mike Lowell had in 2006.
Or, in other words, not a season that would be a huge offensive plus – but also one that would not kill you either.
