He has put up nice stats. I like this move.

Hopefully this Conner Greene steps up and does his job better for us as a pitcher than Tyler Greene did as an infielder!!!

bullpen help?

Glad to see we are resolving the outfielder log jam. Hopefully some of these guys turn into something.

he has never done anything close to this.......

Leone, also 26, was 3-0 with a 2.56 earned run average and 11 holds in 65 games, striking out 81 in 70 1.3 innings. Perhaps more importantly, he stranded 42 of 54 inherited runners (78 per cent), ranking fourth among American League relievers.

even with the new bullpen adds it's still a thin bullpen. He will get another chance to succeed this season. But, so far your right, eventually MLB players knock him around hard.

Ozuna, Pham and Fowler is a pretty decent outfield, correct?

absolute raw natural power. Capable of hitting 500 ft. HR's without putting his best swing on the ball. Hit it out swinging one handed. Great speed in the outfield. Will make highlight reel catches. But doesn't take the best path to the ball.

His problem is that he can't lay off or recognize the cutter in the dirt or outside. At times it's better. But, he reverts back to swinging at that crap. So he will kill rallies and hit .240

He ever learns to lay off that pitch consistently he's an All-Star.

He's old enough now that he will never learn to do that. I assume the Jays think they can accentuate what he actually can do (his power) and possibly replace Pillar in center in the next year or two.

probably. That's why you got a player with such great natural power for a bullpen guy.
