Jason Pirdie is in the major leagues. He is the poster boy of what the former Rays regime did with their high draft picks. As a career minor league journeyman, he was summoned when Pagan landed on the DL.
NL Fantasy says: “Jason Pridie got the start in CF with Angel Pagan hitting the DL. I would expect Pridie to split time with Willie Harris while Pagan is out of action”
Dirty Mets says : “Jason Pridie who played center as a call up for DL’d Pagan, had a tough time. It’s not like he had any errors tonight but had an adventure covering some ground on two rockets hit beyond his reach that would result in doubles.”
LoHud says ” Pridie, once a top prospect with the Twins, is more of a glove than a bat in center field. He starts tonight, and it will be interesting to see if he gets regular time there, or if Harris/Hairston share it as well. This isn’t a prospect situation anymore, in terms of Pridie. But maybe, a team with the defensive struggles of the Mets just wants a great glove out there right now.”
This is the best the Mets organization has to offer?
