It took longer than it should have, but the cream has finally risen to the top. Heavy P has been named Kansas City's starting DH, forcing the worthless Ken Harvey to the bench.
Pickering, you may remember, hit eight home runs in a 20 AB span last year in Omaha on the way to slugging .712. He was them promoted and continued hiting for power, while drawing 18 walks in 140 plate appearances. Going foward, the guy's 10th percentile PECOTA projection - the worst case scenario - is a .237/.355/.475 line.
Good news for everyone, except for opposing pitchers and, I suppose, Ken Harvey.
