When he is hitting the ball well he is a line drive hitter. If he develops an upper cut he could have some power but for now he will hit for a good average and a little power, maybe 10HR, but not this year.
I completly agree. The only reason people think he'll develop power is because JP Ricciardi keeps saying that as he "fills out" he will get more power. Well...he seems to be staying skinny. He's put on weight, but he's still keeping his body type. Maybe one day he'll develop some power, but I doubt he will ever hit more than 20HR and I would be surprised if he ever reaches 15. As a Blue Jays fan just watching him play he is more effective when he hits the ball in the gaps and uses his legs to go for triples and doubles.
