Second Baseman | Free Agents
Bartell never has been a patient hitter. In past seasons, Bartell has been a bit of a liability with men on base. He hits righthanders and lefthanders with equal consistency. You can expect Rich Bartell to hit the ball to the opposite field... that's just the kind of hitter he is.
Baserunning & Defense
His defense is solid but unspectacular. His arm is accurate enough. He generally takes one base at a time, though he'll take advantage if an outfielder gets lackadaisical.
What The Free Agents was thinking when they signed Bartell to a long contract, is beyond me: this guy flat-out sucks.
