Dont worry. Adley to the rescue. The real question is going to be does Sisco's bat play well enough that he can stick given his defensive weaknesses and if so just where do you play him?


Can you keep him as a backup catcher?

Can you DH him?

Can he play any other field position?


Certainly the O's are pondering these questions and are working all the angles to figure it out.

I would play him some at 1st, and third.  Maybe even try him at second.  


A utility guy who can go behind the plate has value.

If he can catch well enough to have made it to this level behind the plate, then I'm pretty confident he can handle another position given some time.


3B, 2B, LF...would be nice if he doesn't have to be only another cog in the potential 1B/DH carousel.  


Bigger question for Sisco is the bat.  He's gotta start hitting.  Good patience and pop this year, but the hit tool has abandoned him and that's the one thing I thought he'd have no issues with.  So hopefully that part is a fluke of a small sample and the other stuff remains.

Sisco doesn’t have a terribly unlucky BABiP(but it’s still a little low) but I think the batted ball stats suggest his BA should be better.

However, I doubt they suggest his BA should be much higher than 250 and we should expect better than that.

Despite that, his OPS is still 98 and his wRC+ is 98.
