Any thougths on how the 3B import for the D-Rays will do this year or what to expect from him fantasy-wise?

I think he'll be a 20-20 guy. 20 bombs, 20 SB, 80 RBI, .285 avg

I`m expecting some good numbers from him.

20 steals is a pretty high number... did he run a lot in Japan?

He only stole 5-8 bases per year for the last 5 seasons. Career high of 15 came in 2001 before he became a true power threat in Japan. He might adjust his game to incorporate more speed upon starting his MLB career (like Ichiro who only stole 11-21 bases per year in his last three years in Japan) because he probably also knows that Japanese hitters tend to get their HR totals halved when moving across the Pacific.
