RBI Stats

Puhl in RBI

Despite being on the worst hitting team in RBI by far, Puhl should probably not be a full-time starter. Though there are many holes in the Houston lineup, Puhl's 768 power rating is the lowest among Astro subs. His big benefit is the fact that he's the only left-handed hitter on the Houston bench. This makes Puhl much more valuable for late inning sitations to utilize pitcher-hitter matchups with the pinch hit bonus. Puhl isn't exactly terrible, but can be quite effective if used properly.
