For those of you who don’t remember, I live in the Detroit area. Edgar Renteria’s time in Detroit didn’t go all that well so I’m taking this signing with a grain of salt. They inked him to a one year deal worth $3 million and I guess I can live with that. It’s low risk (one year only) and the money isn’t significant.
For Renteria, it looks like we were one of the few places to commit to Renteria full time at shortstop. My concern is he’s been at or near the bottom of the league in a lot of fielding metrics there. Going to left he was always good but even that’s gone away the past couple of years. Going to his right he’s pretty bad. Still, hopefully he can hit for us.
