    Re: 2013 Eduardo Nunez Performance Thread

    Nunez will be 26 in June. If he plays SS most days for another month and doesn't show signs of emerging as a solid player than it's time to cut losses. If that happens at least he's gone and we don't have to worry about it anymore.
    Let the kids play.

    gotta somebody from outside of the NYY farm system, shouldn't be that tough to find a player that is competent but not a star.

    Though his bat has been sub-par to say the least, Nunez defense has been a bright spot so far early in the season..

    that's kind of a whiff by The Onion ("Nunez to stop showing up injured team captain Derek Jeter by making routine plays in the field and at the plate."), considering how hideously awful Nunez has been offensively so far this year.

    I have to believe that HBP dead on the wrist awhile back....................has to be hampering him, mental, physically or both.

    That whack put him out of whack. His approach seems out of time.

    Agreed. One on the wrist and one on the arm, both of which were bad enough for him to sit. I think they contributed to his offensive swoon. I mean, the guy is no Mickey Mantle, but he's not this terrible either...ie, he's clearly had a pulse at the plate before. His total lack of offensive production just makes no sense considering his history.

    on the bright side, Nunez's 32 wRC+ is almost robust compared to Jeff Keppinger's 4 or Aaron Hicks' 12.

    He was a sub-.700 OPS hitter in the minors. He's done nothing to show he's better than that.

    I'm not saying he's a superstar, but I'm saying that he's a hell of a lot better than the .450ish OPS he's posted so far this season. Sub-.450 is a totally different ballgame than sub-.700.

    I hope this is goodbye Mr. Mendoza. He damn sure is better than a .200 hitter.

    I didn't imply that you did. It's really difficult to be as bad as a .450 OPS hitter throughout the course of a full season, but ~.700 with his defense is still pretty brutal.

    not that bright though ! He has three errors and made another today that was somehow called a hit.

    I think he will earn 15-25 errors playing everyday.

    The guy should be a backup only.

    I guess he reads this board. He has hit 3 since then.

    If we would have kept Juan Rivera to play first, Nunez would have had around 6 additional throwing errors.

    I am a tad surprised by the existence of a Nunez performance thread, TBH.

    I think the Jeter injury and setback bought him much more than that.
