Jose Mijares Signed

KC signed Jose Mijares today to fill a role that Tim Collins couldn't, the infamous LOOGY. Left handed batters hit only .210 against Collins in 2011 but his inability to consistently throw strikes led them to post a .378 on-base percentage. Against Mijares in his career though, they've only managed a Yuni-like .276 OBP.

If Mijares can regain his 2009/2010 form (161 ERA+) this is a good signing by Moore.

He most definitely better be used only as a LOOGY. The rhb faction have lit him up.

Trey would use him against righties if only to prove a point that he alone understands but I think Yost knows better.
