Latest Update Ryan Raburn belts second homer in win over the Dodgers Thu Jul, 03, 07:49 AM
Owns very good bat speed and uses it well with a nice approach at the plate. Can play several positions on the field, and get red-hot at the dish. Boasts good power. Mashes left-handed pitching.
Flaws: : Despite his versatility with the glove, he's not a polished fielder anywhere. Also strikes out way too much, vis-a-vis his walks total. Is prone to massive hitting slumps. Doesn't hit well enough against righties.
Although it was nice to see Raburn back in the starting lineup after dealing with a neck injury his previous three games, Wednesday's long ball was just his second of the season as he continues to struggle as we reach the halfway point. He is barely hitting over the Mendoza Line (.201 BA) and until his power stroke returns should draw no interest from fantasy owners looking for outfield depth. Analyst: Matthew Beck
While Coney Dog Raburn may be returning to the "big league" lineup he should not be making his way onto your rosters in mixed league formats.Analyst: Michael Pichan
