Lofton reviews

SDS

Anyone try Kenny Lofton with any success?? Switching up my lineup a little bit and want some more speed. Hes relatively cheap compared to Juan Pierre and others just didnt know if anyone had any reviews on him? Thanks.

I have used him as my opening guy for a short while, and he was good. I've replaced him with Ellsbury, as he's got more pop.

Awesome thanks! Love his speed and figured for the price he might be worth a shot....

I have Lofton on my bench and will pinch run him late in games when Sheffield or Reggie get on. He’s a good singles hitter & bunter. Weak arm but his speed allows you to cover alot of ground. And obviously he’s incredible at swiping bags.

Good speed, great defense, solid line drive bat with very little power. I defense him by playing my outfielders shallow and corner infielders in to defense against the drag bunt. He’s a solid option and is better in my mind then Juan Pierre.

Noodle arm but a solid leadoff hitter/pinch runner/late inning defense replacement.

I have lofton batting second his arm is not the best but he makes up in contact singles and his speed. Also has diamond fielding

Thanks! I think I'm either going to put him leadoff with Victorino second, or bat him 9th and the pitcher 8th....

He's hitting .400 online for me in over 100 ABs.. not much power, but he turns singles into doubles with max speed.
Defensively his range more than makes up for his linguini arm

Which OF spot are you playing him in? I'm thinking of playing him in LF with Victorino in center and Jackson in right....

I have him in LF to mitigate his arm. He drops to gold but it doesn't matter because his range stays super high with 98 speed off the read...

McCutchen is my CF.
