Borenstein should have been on the 2017 @Mets would have fit in nicely https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUeJrjGmuZk #Mets

His stance/swing reminds me of Luis Gonzalez. Given Gonzalez works in the D-Backs FO, is that not a coincidence? (See highlight here: http://m.mets.mlb.com/news/article/2623 ... d=27118392)

Looks like a coincidence. Here he is in 2013 (while with the Angels) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPVKVF30N4o

I mentioned this in the other thread where he was brought up, but he was a team-Israel guy along with Ike & Ty Kelly and Zeid and Thornton.

His K rate is Taijeronesque. I have a tough time seeing guys with over 25% K rates in AAA ever working out in MLB.

Go to the next video...he hits a rocket off Seth Lugo....

I hope that the first video you posted is not indicative of his "normal" defense. I look at this signing as a one-for-one replacement of Taijeron.

Hopefully the "other" Zach will come into ST with no arm woes. He still has good stuff; just needs to have some luck with his surgically repaired arm. I have NOT given up on him!
