LF- B+

Matsui is an overrall solid, steady player. He's one of the few projected starters who have lived up to expectations. He's batting .274/.358/.464/.278 (BA/OBP/SLG%/EQA). He's played a solid, not great but solid LF. Considering that he's coming off a wrist injury he's doing all right. I`ve heard that it takes 18 months for a broken wrist to completely heal so I think he`ll be having a big second half. Damon might also be used in LF a little more which I think would be pretty dumb. I suggested that Matsui be moved to first base this offseason to make room for Cabrera in the everyday lineup. Now that Matsui's consecutive game streak is over Torre is able to give him a few days off every once in a while which helps. The general impressions seems to be that he is having a terrible year and is as big a waste of money as Giambi, Damon, and Abreu but in reality he has had a solid year especially considering that his wrist isn't fully healed yet.
