Dude has some minor league stats that make you think there’s something there. David Cooper posted a .788 OPS in 140 at bats for Toronto in 2012, but he hasn’t been healthy since then, so who knows. He only plays first base, so a lot of things would have to fall right (or fall apart) for him to get serious playing time in the near future. He can start the year at Columbus and, if he hits like he has in the past, you could see him helping out if someone gets hurt.
