What in the world is wrong with 1B Ryan Garko of the Cleveland Indians?

27-year old righty swinging 1B Ryan Garko looked like he was going to be a centerpiece of the Indians lineup for years to come after his breakout 2007 season. In 2007, Garko played in 138 games for the Indians and he was 140 for 484 (.289 avg, .842 OPS) with 62 runs scored, 21 homers and 61 RBIs. But, he hasn’t looked good this season causing the Indians to re-evaluate what they have in him. The converted catcher is not even near an average defender at 1B so if he’s not hitting he shouldn’t be playing. Garko has played in 90 games this season for the Indians and he is 74 for 313 (.236 avg, .657 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 8 homers and 49 RBIs. He will likely have the rest of the season to show he can do but if he doesn’t shape up he won’t be getting near as many at bats in 2008 for the Indians.
