Latest Update Denorfia homers, scores three times in Mariners win Thu Sep, 04, 11:53 PM
Has developed pretty good discipline at the plate. Makes consistent contact and has decent power. Runs well and possesses a good arm in the outfield. Is versatile and can come off the bench to get a hit.
Flaws: : None of his tools are particularly great, which limits his at-bats in the big leagues. Gets a little jittery with runners in scoring position. Doesn't hit right-handed pitching well enough to play every day.
A lefty got the start for Texas on Thursday night, so enter lefty-masher Chris Denorfia. This is exactly the type of numbers you want to see when Denorfia gets into the lineup against a left-hander and if you were able to insert him into your lineup on Thursday night, it is certainly paying dividends for you now.Analyst: David Kerr
Denorfia is hitting .244 since being acquired by the Mariners with four runs, no home runs and three RBI in 45 at bats.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Denorfia was not brought to Seattle to play everyday, so him sitting against right-hander Julio Teheran shouldn't be a surprise here. He's never been an everyday player, so there's no reason to believe that he would be one now. Left-handed Endy Chavez will get the start in right field Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Denorfia holds a little bit of value around the league and could probably fetch the Padres a relatively decent prospect. The Mariners seem to be kicking on the tires on every outfielder available, but the Giants, who really need to replace Angel Pagan in center, and the Blue Jays, who could certainly use some help int he corners, seem to be the better fit.Analyst: Howard Bender
