Plus Tribe beat writer Jordan Bastian reported that Matt’s not in the lineup for either game of the Clippers’ doubleheader today. Interesting…
If this is true, good luck Matt!! :)
It’s not a matter of luck for LaPorta. He’s hit .238 with 30 HR and 115 RBIs in his major league career. Last year, he hit .247 with 11 HR and 53 RBI. Overall, even if he doesn’t hit like a top prospect, he’ll be better than Damon/Duncan/etc.
