It occurred to me yesterday that I haven’t seen much of Aaron Rowand lately.
Yup. That’s what happens when your wOBA is .282.
Rowand will be making $12M per year over the next two seasons. I wholeheartedly give Bochy credit for realizing that there are much better CF options on the team in Andres Torres and Cody Ross. Ross is actually very similar to Rowand but without the price and he’s hitting a little this year. I fully expect to see Rowand playing in the corners next year in order to get more playing time. His days as just a CF and nothing else are probably numbered.
