    Hard to know how this season will play out, but you gotta think Grichuk will be given every opportunity to succeed, Pillar still has CF locked down, Teo has impressed enough to have a starting role as a corner OF. Alford definitely looks like he needs more time in the minors at this point. DSJ could be up as a 4th OF next year, I don't think he's ever really profiled as a starter. Pompey's best chance would be to beat out either DSJ for a bench role or Grichuk for a starter role IMO

    Pillar, far more likely

    By the way, I am not pegging Pompey for a starting role, but as a 4th OF, late inning defensive replacement, pinchrunner / basestealer

    He has some very nice tools useful as a (league min) 4th OF

    You just described Pompey's ceiling.

    If the Jays fall further out I'd be very open to Toronto moving Pillar for anything of value. Run with Pompey, Grichuk and Hernandez as your starters in LF, CF and RF and use DSJ as your 4th OF for the season and see what happens. It's time for Pompey to sink or swim and if he fails at least when he's let go or taken on waivers you're happy you've seen enough to make a safe judgement that he has no future with the team. Toronto would of course need to release Morales and use Granderson and Pearce as DH/OF/1B options off the bench.

    Nah. Pompey's ceiling is an above average CF, leadoff batter

    Why Gibby is refusing to let Oh to close the game.. Oh is a guy who has total of 396 saves in Korea, Japan, and the MLB (277 in Korea, 80 in Japan, and 39 in the MLB. He of course has the lowest ERA in the bullpen right now

    Smith Jr can play that role and still has options.
