hes 26 and turns 27 in a week.
hes always hit well enough that he should get a chance in the majors, but its kind of hard to break in to the mlb as a DH, even though the rangers havnt had a ton of great dhs.... hes only gotten 77 at bats so its not like hes failed as a big leaguer and been sent down after a real try. jack cust? yeah, pretty much. not quite as much HR power though.
but in any case, since may 1st he was hitting .361 with a .480 obp and lots of rbis, and he is definitely getting a chance this year for the final third of the season or whatever it ends up being, gm said so.
as far as fantasy goes, i dont think hes only someone you need to be worried about in deep or al only leagues though, until you see what he does in his mlb stint. could end up being a sleeper pick for next year though, definitely. or he could be bad
