Baldiris Acquired

The Rangers claimed AA 2B and 3B Aarom Baldiris of waivers from the New York Mets last week. He played for the Binghamton Mets. Here are last year’s stats:
.275 AVG
63 RBI (2nd on team)
11 HR
495 AB (1st on team)
131 G (1st on team)
.341 OBP
.416 SLG
19 E (most on team)
7 SB (6th on team)
81 SO (5th most on team)
45 BB (2nd most on team)
206 TB (2nd most on team)

Baldiris started his career in 2000 and has lifetime minor league stats of:
.299 AVG
283 RBI
33 HR
1957 AB
535 G
.371 OBP
.417 SLG
45 SB
295 SO
221 BB

Aarom in my eyes has potential as a average hitter and MAYBE a power hitter if he keeps improving his power numbers like he did last year. In 2006 I think his potential impact is what Marshall McDougall did last year. In his career I think he has a 50-50 shot at helping a team in the majors.
