Dave Van Horn at the Swatter’s Club today spoke quite a bit about his frustration in the production from Jared Gates and Jordan McFarland in SEC play. He said he may change things up this week and put someone else there. One candidate is Jack Kenley.
He said he has been asked by fans why Evan Lee or Luke Bonfield won’t play there. He said it’s because they are not good fielders.
“It’s just time. Now it has turned into a defensive position for me. If we decide to go back to an offensive position, then maybe somebody else goes there and we put (Bonfield) in the outfield and we can DH Lee. It’s not like there’s panic. It’s frustration more than anything because this is a position that in most cases is going to be a position where guys produce.”
Matt from listening to Coach Van Horns comments to the swatters club he is also looking at Campbell for a shorter start ( pitch count) was what it appeared! He is as frustrated as the fans are! Especially at the defense at first base.
