**Reliable IN/OF/P on the #YEG Slo-Pitch Free Agent Market**
Dave Sawchuk is a strong defender with a good arm and high “Baseball IQ.” In addition to being able to play every defensive position at a high level, he can also be counted on in a pinch to throw a few innings. Don’t expect much on the hill though; just strikes and plenty of good-natured banter.
His real strength is consistency. “Sawchuk is the kind of ball player that shows up every week with a 6-pack”, says former teammate Len Wangen. “He’s just slow. Really slow. I mean, how is a guy that tall so slow?” added Wangen, unprompted. While Sawchuk has never been clocked in the 40 yard dash, many top scouts think he’d be average with a tail wind.
His consistency isn’t limited to just showing up with libations. Dave is a singles hitter from the right side with the ability to hit .500. That is not a typo. “He hits to all fields, albeit with the power of a 14 year-old”, says one former manager with ties to the free agent. Think Wade Boggs, not Mike Trout.
Why you should sign him: he won’t throw behind the runner; but knows to hit behind one. His “Good Times IQ” is also a strong point. Dave Sawchuk isn’t a “Gary Go-Hard” or a “Sammy Serious” on the diamond or in the club house.
