Plucked from Tampa's unprotected roster in the winter of 2012, eft-handed slugger Matt Sweeney looks like a good fit for Baltimore, thanks to the organization's need for corner power. A strong, tree-trunk of a hitter, most call him a third baseman, but he's looking like a Casey Kotchman-style first basemen to us right now. His last couple of seasons were not awful, but were disappointing for a player many expected to be a top prospect by now. He really needs to dial it up for 2013, or risk a future in a new field, perhaps actual lumberjackery rather than the metaphorical.
