Arenado is tearing it up at the springs with an OPS of 1.397 – which even for the PCL is exceptional.
On the other hand Nelson has shown no power and a rag doll arm.
He’s had a tough time reaching first and that bad throw home against SF cost us a game. I think Helton has saved him at least 3 errors on balls in the dirt which were NOT rushed throws. Just an inaccurate arm…
So, I think it’s only a matter of time and the Rox should be looking to see what we can get for Nelson.
I forget the exact date when a player can come up without it counting as a year towards his service?
I believe someone said May? Unless something changes drastically he should be our starting 3B on that day.
