I saw that Bubba went 1-for-2 this afternoon with an RBI and an SB against the Red Sox. I did a quick search on google
and didn't find much except for Bubba's minor league stats
. What's the scoop on Bubba (besides that he was acquired from the Dodgers last year and that he's a 27 year old minor leaguer and he's running out of time, if he hasn't already run out of time)? Is he a good fielder? Is there any chance that he can make the roster coming out of spring training? He hit well in the PCL last season (which I know isn't too hard, but he batted .361 with an OPS of 1.045), and has a history of speed. He seems to have a decent eye and doesn't strike out too often. I also saw that Cliff covered Bubba briefly in his Non-Roster Invitee list
Any more info on this guy? Having someone like Bubba as a backup OF instead of Tony Clark would seem to be much more desirable, especially since he has a little speed, too. I'm guessing his chances are slim-to-none, but maybe they can package him for a starting pitcher if (when) the need arises.
