Let's not include Buxton in the same category as Sano.Yes, Buxton started slowly.But his problem has been an injury, including some games trying to come back from it when he should have remained on the DL.Yes, Buxton may never be the hitter we all hoped for, but with his speed and defense he can become a very important part of a good team.Maybe they need to work with him next off season to become a small ball type of hitter.
The player I think should be included with Sano is Brian Dozier.Usually players in their contract year put up numbers that are off the charts.He seems more like a player who has left town and is uninterested in what happens to this team....at least to me while he is on the field.A lot of defensive mistakes and minimal production at the plate.
As for Sano.He is just plain too big to be effective on the field.As I said elsewhere this morning, when Polanco is back I would ship his butt off to Rochester.Maybe that would get his attention that he needs to work to become the best player he can be.
I would get rid of Adrianza before I demote Sano though. Sano just needs to hit much lower in the order. He could be a good threat off the bench.
