the potnetial to lead the league in 2 categories while not hurting you anywhere else, from a SS? looks like a first round pick to me.
I think in coming years he'll actually approach .320. Even this year I expect him to hit around .300. Jose is becoming a smarter hitter with better plate discipline and already makes great contact. He has a really low BABIP, and with his speed he should have a BABIP around .330-.340 instead of just .305. And his HR/F is up to 8.7%. Lets not forget that he is just 23, and his power is developing. He could approach 20 hr's a year starting next year.
