Sarah's Take: Jim Leyritz

10-29-00

In June the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Jim Leyritz from the world champion New York Yankees for Jose Vizcaino.  Known for his World Series heroics, Leyritz had some game-winning pinch hits.  In 41 games for the Dodgers he batted .200 with a home run and eight RBI.  Defensively he was a catcher, first baseman and a left fielder, and he did satisfactorily.  His season ended early with a torn rotator cuff.  At 36 Leyritz is a free agent, and it is doubtful that the Dodgers will re-sign him.
