Second Baseman | Retired or Inactive Players
In past seasons, Knabe has been a bit of a liability with men on base. The book on Knabe is that you can knock the bat out of his hands with an average major league fastball. He hangs in well against lefthanders' breaking balls, and some of the pitchers he hits best are the southpaw specialists often brought in to face him. You can expect Arlen Knabe to hit the ball to the opposite field... that's just the kind of hitter he is.
Baserunning & Defense
Knabe doesn't have great speed, though he reads righthanders' moves well enough to steal a handful of bases each season without getting caught very often. His glovework leaves a lot to be desired. Arlen's arm leaves a little to be a desired.
