Player Profile: Mark Kotsay

Chad CreelCorrespondent IApril 9, 2008

Mark Kotsay came over in a trade to replace the Braves' longtime center fielder Andruw Jones who left for the Dodgers in free agency.

Kotsay is a solid player that will come to the ballpark ready to work everyday. He is a good defensive center fielder and has a solid bat in an already deep Atlanta Braves lineup.

He has started the 2008 season off a little slow, but did hit a two-run shot last night in losing effort to the Colorado Rockies. I think Kotsay will have a solid year, nothing spectacular, but it is nice to have a guy towards the end of the lineup that can get hot and get on streaks now and then.
