Paul DeJong Had Coachability Concerns; Teams Cooling On Jose Quintana

Paul DeJong, 3B, Cardinals — He homered in his first career at-bat, as a pinch hitter against Greg Holland, and started his major league career 4 for 11, with three hits for extra bases. The former Illinois State biochemistry major was once called by a scout before the draft, who said there was a “coachability concern” because of his field of study. “Two years ago he was closing the door to his chemistry lab at ISU and now his MLB career door has opened,” said agent Burton Rocks.
