Blanco and Torres are the best we can do in LF???? On paper, at least, we have a severe power shortage from that position.
For what it's worth, I expect Brandon Belt will be starting in LF in games where Posey will play 1B and Hector Sanchez will Catch. If Brown has a good first two-three months in Fresno, I expect him to be called up in mid-season.
The way service time works, Brown has to spend at least three weeks in Fresno this year otherwise he would be eligible for FA after 2018 rather than 2019.
With the Torres signing I'm not that thrilled about it. At the same time, it's only a one year 2M (won't exactly cripple the franchise), it does give us more depth at the OF position.
