Forty of Medrano's 41 games in the field were spent at 3B, where he committed 15 errors in 129 chances for a pedestrian .884 Fld%.
We've made the allotment in looking at Greeneville players of their first season in the States, and the same courtesy should be extended here. Medrano had spent the 2005-2007 seasons in the Venezuelan Summer League, and missed the 2008 season for reasons which I'm still looking for. In 2006-2007, Medrano had OPS' of .775 and .774, respectively, though his 2009 OPS was two points higher than his rookie season in '05, with a .544 OPS. Let's see if a second season produces a rebound before passing judgment.
