The guy has the most amount of scoreless appearances for a LHP since 2004 with 441. Not that it reflects on how he's pitching this year, but it's a pretty cool tidbit. And Jacobs was 36th on SoxProspects. With how talented the system is right now, the guy didn't really have a shot here.
That's nice to see. He has almost as many innings against righties who have an .834 OPS vs him this year. Just avoid using him against righties as much as possible and he should help a little.
I don't know why nomar loves Jacobs so much. He can only play LF, his offense hasn't been that good, and he K's like crazy. The odds of him being a good enough hitter to be an everyday LF are so small.
