Eric Wedge discusses Carlos Peguero and what he brings to the Mariners and why he chose him over some other veteran guys at Tacoma. If you are Mike Carp or Matt Tuiasosopo it has to sting a little.
Before you ask why not Josh Bard? well, he's not on the 40-man roster. So there is that issue.
It's a nice little reward for Pegeuro who's gotten off to a nice start in Tacoma. He has true power. I saw him hit a homer high off the scoreboard in right center in the Rainiers home opener at Cheney. The ball had to go at least 400 feet. He later hit a ball off the wall in Center at 425 feet. So the power is there. The contact will always be a question.
