luckily enough, he played just enough last year to void his "rookie" status in my keeper league and the Rays have kept him in the minors all season this year so I can't get a feeling of whether or not to waste a keeper spot on him.

Thanks, Tampa Bay!

At the rate he is making errors. Up to at least 40 now. He may get the call as a DH and remain there. He is hitting and stealing bases. I think he has 34 sbs. He just can't field.

I believe it's not his fielding, it's his throwing...I thought I read most of his E were of that nature. If so, then it's probably in his head because they tell him "work on your defense" so he overthinks it...
