I’ve been a fan of Ryan Strieby for a few years now. Way back when I was working on Tigers prospect lists, I took some heat for including him in there and was vindicated when he had a stellar season in 2008. Injuries have plagued him though and this took center stage last year when he only played in 76 games. His big problem are his wrists and after surgery and now rest, the hope is that the big first baseman will be able to get back on track.
Jason Beck’s latest is a nice profile on Strieby. He still has work to do in his outfield conversion (hopefully Miguel Cabrera isn’t going anywhere for a long time) so hopefully 2011 will be a fruitful season for Strieby.
