A .400 average and a 1.257 OPS? :-b

No, he definitely won't keep that up, but judging by his new look swing I think he has a chance to be a 25 HR, .300 AVG, 15 SB, .900 OPS guy. He'd have to win the job from Hinske though, for that to happen.

Yea, he's definatley doing his best to win the job on an every day basis, but he still is getting days off when the matchup isn't in his favor. For a waiver or late pick in most leagues you can't complain about his production so far.

THe question is, is this a breakout season, or is he just having a good first month? He's at the age where breakouts happen, but who knows... If you've got enuf spots, it's worth it to pick him up, but if I had to bet, he's just on a streak.

He should have a breakout season. You know, he's at that stage, age wise.

TOR has a formidable lineup. EHinske shouldn't pose a serious threat to ARios.

He's a 5 tool player right? Just like VWells.
