What do you do with a fourth outfielder when you love two of your starting OFs and the third is one of the best players in the American League?
We've written about Mitch Maier before this season, and he's written back to us. Here's the topline point: MITCH doesn't play very much, yet the Royals have dutifully/weirdly/loyally kept him on the roster all season long. Easy money I guess.
Back on the 7th (the last time he played) Mitch got 3 PAs, which pushed him right to 100 on the season.

But oh, did Yost toy with us. Since August 14th -- now a full month ago -- MITCH has appeared in three games. Three.
Per plate appearance, MITCH has made $4,590 dollars every time he's stepped in the box this season.
