I just checked that Kike is doing all he can to get non-tendered in December. He definitely isn't making the playoff roster.....but Roberts does love the guy for some insane reason.
I don't know. Would love for that to be the case but Dave & the FO love him for some ungodly reason. They'll use some excuse about backing up CF/SS or something. I'm thinking that his big year was an outlier and he's not very good.
Well, his swing is a complete mess. He can be had on anything from the middle of the plate out and with his massive uppercut, if it spins he ain't touching it. The smartest thing for the kid to do is spend the winter rebuilding his swing from the ground up. Given the depth we have at OKC and Tulsa, Kike should be given zero rope.
