Latest Update Denorfia homers in loss Mon Sep, 22, 10:33 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.
Denorfia hasn't shown all that much since joining the Mariners, so this is more likely an aberration than what you should expect on a regular basis.Analyst: Ivar G. AndersonMore Experts..
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
