Josh Barfield is All Smiles, For Now

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IJune 10, 2008

Josh Barfield was probably the happiest man in the Tribe dugout today, as he finally is back with the big club after a little over two months in AAA Buffalo.

He didn't really improve on his problem areas (too many Ks, not many walks), but Asdrubal Cabrera has been downright inept at the plate. Wedge loved having him on the roster, due to his superior glove, but his at-bats were not improving. Hopefully Cabrera will be back soon, as currently the only backup for Peralta at shortstop is Jamey Carroll, and that is not a good sign.

With Andy Marte entrenched on the bench, we will see if J-Barf can finally develop into the talent the Indians brass projected him to be.
