Last year he had 38 fielding errors and 15 throwing.
This year only 5 fielding errors and 12 throwing.
So as you can see he has improved fielding by quite a bit, projected to make 15 or so this year by fielding. If he can get a handle on his throws (I really hope he does) he might get this defense thing down.
But with Julio Lugo in his way, and the D'Rays still one of the cheapest teams in baseball...who knows when he'll get a chance.
All I know is that normally, if you have an MLB ready bat like Upton does, they'll look past the defense and let you work it out in the majors (ie Ricky Weeks). The D'Rays just don't wanna pay the kid, start his clock and alla that fun stuff.
