Catcher | Free Agents
Sloope never has been a patient hitter. Sloope always has been a line-drive hitter who uses the entire field. 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.
Baserunning & Defense
His defense is solid but unspectacular. His arm is accurate enough. Sloope isn't fast, but he's a heady baserunner who rarely gets thrown out.
I can't say I know what The Free Agents were doing locking this guy up to a long term contract. A questionable call at best.
