Randal is definitely one to keep an eye on here. It seems to be a toss up as to whether or not he will be included on the opening day roster or not. Regardless he is a player to watch, especially given he is leading the team in HR in ST. Grichuk is obviously not going to have a starting role which is why some are advocating for him to spend some more time in Memphis to get some more AB and work on his discipline a little. Looking at his playoff and spring training stats shows that they are vaguely similar except that Randal has cut his strikeouts almost in half totaling 13 in the playoffs and 7 through the same number of PA. This has been the biggest gripe about his ability, everyone knows he has good power but has wondered about his contact abilities. If he can cut down on the strikeouts then he could be a key cog in a championship run for this team.
