Prospect of the Day:  1B/OF Sean Halton (Triple-A Nashville)

Halton extended his hitting streak to 12 games last night with an impressive 3-for-4 performance, which included a double, a home run and three RBI. It was also his fourth-consecutive game with multiple hits, so perhaps it’s an understatement to say he’s been impressive lately. Since the beginning of May, Halton is hitting .313/.372/.574 with seven doubles, a triple and seven home runs.

And although I’m usually not one to advocate promoting fringe prospects, Halton likely does have a place on the big-league roster. He could replace Yuniesky Betancourt as the right-handed platoon at first base. The necessary power for first base isn’t there, but he at least has a hit tool — which is more than Betancourt provides at the dish. He’s hitting a putrid .175/.210/.255 since the beginning of May.

Jeff Bianchi can handle the reserve shortstop role. Juan Francisco can continue to play first base against right-handed pitching. Sean Halton can play first base against tough lefties, and he can provide extra depth at the corner outfield positions. As far as clearing a spot on the 40-man roster, Blake Lalli should clear waivers rather easily if the organization doesn’t wish to simply part ways with Betancourt. The move just makes too much sense.

    fiers could go on the 60 day dl and halton could take his spot

      But Yuni could be the only the second player to post 6 negative WAR seasons in a row:

      I don’t want to miss out on that fine accomplishment!

      • Doug says: June 17, 2013

        Seriously though – I think Yuni going 0 for 5 in the five hole Friday night and the Brewers ultimately losing by 1 run should about do it for him. DFA him and call up Halton to play first and provide some pop at the corner outfield spots while Braun heals.

        I mean it can’t get any worse – can it?
