Will Carroll seems to think so. In his latest health positional reports, Magglio Ordonez not only gets a green light but he doesn’t even get a blurb. He’s been healthy for a season and a half now and even his 2005 sports hernia was kind of fluky. He does lumber in the field, but at least he’s out there most every day. Then again, Bobby Abreu picked up a green light too and he’s already on the shelf.
PECOTA sees Ordonez having a bit of a power dip. His weighted mean average has him at .292/.347/.454, which isn’t bad, but not worth the $12 million we’ll be paying him in 2007. You have to go all the way up to the 90th percentile to see him exceed 20 homeruns.
