This is the second of my Mike Hessman posts, the first of which, can be found here: http://razzball.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1179&st=0&sk=t&sd=a
with many more unnecessary Mike Hessman updates to come.Today's Mike Hessman News comes to us from MLB.COM, where Hessman is compared to the likes of Jack Cust and Ryan Ludwick... well, sorta:
Mike Hessman, 3B, Tigers: Hessman will turn 31 shortly, but that doesn't mean he has nothing to offer the Tigers in Detroit. Yes, he's hit just .231 in his Minor League career, but he's also hit 288 home runs and 30-plus in each of the past two seasons. That's led to some brief callups to the bigs, and he's hit nine homers in just 78 big league at-bats over the past two seasons. It's hard to imagine that he won't be back in Toledo to start the year, but if some right-handed power is needed in Motown, Hessman could make for a great story.
More gratuitous Hessman news to come as it arrives off the wire...
