|2009 - Chris Getz||107||375||49||98||18||4||2||31||30||54||25||2||.261||.324||.347|
|2009 - Josh Fields||79||239||29||53||5||2||7||30||25||76||2||3||.222||.301||.347|
- The Royals shed Teahen's probable ~$3-4 million-ish salary. Getz & Fields are both league minimum guys.
- Presumably Fields will compete for the DH job. He really shouldn't be in the field. Then again, would a Fields at 3rd, Gordon at 1st, scenario stun you?
- Not immediately sure what to make of Getz. His (small sample) defensive numbers aren't good. Maybe he's a depth guy, maybe they have a plan to use him. Too early to say. I know that he wasn't popular in the White Sox clubhouse after making some seemingly innocuous statements about the younger players on the team energizing the club.
