Looks like the M's are about to sign Jack Cust.
Cust Looks to make around 2.5 million next year if he passes the physical.
He has an upside of a possible 25-35 HR player with 90+ walks. But he also strikes out a TON! Last year, he showed a loss of power, but his BA improved to .272, up from his career average of .239.
I would call it a good season from him if he hits .260 with 30 HR's and 90 walks.
He is not known for anything else. He cannot steal bases, he can hardly field (though he will try he says).
I guess we shall see if he can do it or not.
He has hit 5 HR's at Safeco, so we know he can do it, let's just hope he can do it enough!
