Player Profile: Mark Kotsay
Mark Kotsay came over in a trade to basically replace the Braves longtime Center Fielder Andruw Jones who left for the Dodgers in Free Agency. Kotsay is a solid player that will just come to the ballpark ready to work everyday. He is a good defensive Center Fielder and has a solid bat in an already deep Atlanta Braves lineup. He has started the 2008 season off a little slow but did hit a 2-Run shot last night in losing effort to the Colorado Rockies. I think Kotsay will have a solid year nothing spectacular, but it is nice to have a guy towards the end of the lineup that can get hot and get on streaks now and then.
