He's not worth even talking about for fantasy. Like a Lyle Overbay, but without the OBP skills.

If David Cooper is the 1B of the future for the Jays, they are in serious trouble.

He also can't play defense. So he's not the future anything.

Thanks for starting the thread. But I do think it's misinformation to call David Cooper the future at 1B for the Blue Jays.

But, you never know. Maybe he gets hot and helps someone out there is a deep league.

Just take a look at his MILB stats before his April in AAA. Underwhelming to the extreme.

could he be developing power?
he was drafted in 2008. 69 games in the low minors that year he had 5 HR.
2009 at AA he had 10 HR
2010 at AA he had 20 HR.
the AVG wasn't much. .258 AVG in 2009 and .257 AVG in 2010.
not what I would call Lyle Overbay, who was a good hitter.

welcome to the cafe. You will soon understand that the # of posts someone has does not make them an expert ;-D

Cooper didn't rate in the Jays top 10 on BA list, and he's not listed anywhere on their projected 2014 lineup.
