The team has not done as well with pro scouting during Huntington's tenure, and it's hard to say with any certainty that they'll be able to finish this season strong and get into a wildcard spot. The two big variables there are the
third OF spot
and how big of an impact Liriano/Cole have.
I'd say there are 2 OF spots with a ton of uncertainty. Not hatin on Marte, it's just that he's still pretty raw, especially at the plate.
