The Angels recalled Kevin Frandsen — a former Giant, Frandsen was a minor-leaguer with the Red Sox earlier this season — and started him at third base on Saturday.
He responded with a 3-for-4 game and scored a run. But don’t get too excited. Frandsen will be 28 on May 24 and hasn’t shown much in the minors.
Last season was his best as a pro, belting 13 homers and driving in 67 while batting .295 for San Francisco’s AAA club. He’s got seven homers and and .245 average in 412 major league at-bats. He was hitting .268 with two homers and eight RBIs for two different minor league teams before his callup.
Any player can go Zobrist, but I’d confidently put a full-time Frandsen at 60/10/55/5/.280 at best. That’s a lot better than what Brandon Wood has shown us, but not a performance that will help your fantasy team.
