I'm still not completely sold on the guy. He's been a little up and down throughout his minor league career. His SB really jumped this last year also and I don't expect him to continue that trend. I'm guessing he turns out to be an ok major league player for a team but he's not going to be a 1B guy you "have to have" on your fantasy team.

I agree. He's a nice guy to have but you won't be clammoring over him at any point. I am also not optimistic that he can maintain the stolen bases or the SB rate, but he should be able to improve his power. Cincinatti is a good place to hit so that will help him for fantasy value.

Pretty big potential for a 22 year old that was Baseball America's minor league 1B of the year last year. I fail to see how anyone can really judge whether or not his SB rate will improve or decline, but this year will be pretty telling. His success rate went up, so his attempts did too. He's still developing, but he's a very good athlete.
