Metroka didn't commit any errors at Lexington, but committed four - all in his 41 games in RF (with 10 in LF and 2 in CF).

It's hard to know what to think about Metroka. He opened a can last year in Greeneville, hitting .327/.387/.531 in Greeneville last year, but hitting .150/.227/.175 in Lexington early this season got him a return visit to Greeneville, where his OPS dropped off 374 points. His K:BB ratio jumped from 3.36 to 3.61 from 2008 to 2009, as well. I'm not sure where he'll start in 2010 - maybe Tri-City?

Citizen Steve, what say you on Nathan Metroka?
Repeated after struggling at Lexington - can't hit a curve ball.

To the batting cages!
