Lancaster reports that Krivsky has acquired Todd Hollandsworth for a PTBNL (it will be interesting to see how they sort all those out at the end of the year). Denorfia probably headed back to L’Ville.
Hollandsworth’s OBP this year is .253. You never like to get a guy who makes LaRue look productive, but I can definitely understand this move. Simply put, they need (or at least think they need) another lefty off the bench.
Hollandsworth vs. RHP this year:
.244 .264 .474 .738
Respectable, but I think I prefer OBP to SLG in my pinch-hitters.
Over the past 3 years, Hollandsworth basically has no platoon splits – he hits LHP and RHP equally.
