Welcome to town...Eric Hinske!?

Written by Joe Lucia on .

God, another pretty great signing from Frank Wren! Eric Hinske was signed to a 1 year contract pending physical last night. Terms have not yet been released. Personally, I think this is an absolutely fantastic deal. Hinske will not bust out rookie of the year numbers, like he did when he won the award in 2002, but nevertheless, he's a great bench player.  Hinske will give you a high .700s OPS along with a pretty good walk rate, and a lot of strikeouts. He can play any corner position on the field, and gives you average to above average defense everywhere but third. I'm going to expect Hinske to spell Chipper and Glaus at the corners every so often, along with serving as the primary pinch hitter off the bench. I don't expect this signing to be more than a million dollars, which makes it a great low risk move. With this move, it appears the Braves are done this offseason unless Frank Wren truly wants to do something about the left field position, which I discussed yesterday. Cabrera would be best served coming off the bench...but then again, who knows what's going to happen with Jason Heyward? So amped for spring training to start....we're what, 5 or 6 weeks away? So awesome.
