No need to look back at his stats from 2 years ago, just look at his stats from last year. He hit .315 with 60 runs, 25 hrs, 73 rbi, and 14 sb at home in one of the best hitters parks. Away from arlington he hit .224 with 42 runs, 11 hr, 31 rbi, and 16 sb. Now hes moving to one of the best pitchers parks so his home numbers will probably be even worse than his away numbers this year. He may be good for some steals and hrs but thats about it, and his avg could kill you. Id avoid him completely on draft day because theres bound to be someone who drafts him thinking theyll be getting a repeat of last years numbers.
