This spring, Jake Fox has been kicking arse at the plate and taking names. He’s hit an astounding seven homers – with two more on Thursday -- during the spring and was a major reason for the Baltimore’s win over Pittsburgh, 13-3.
One would think right now that Fox should be included on the roster coming up north to Baltimore. I would tend to agree; however, what position would he play? First? Outfield? Catcher? Designated Hitter?
Right now, it’s a backup catcher spot. He’s fighting with Craig Tatum – who performed competently last year -- for a job.
I don’t know if we are seeing the real Jake Fox – not likely – or just a guy having an amazing Spring Training and getting timely hits off pitchers that will more than likely start their season in the minors.
Whatever is happening, let’s hope he has enough bullets for the regular season.
Let’s hope it’s just more than a hitter just simply having a good month.
Again, it’s only Spring Training…
