Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

He should have a solid batting average (His 49 strikeouts vs. 37 walks in the minors is outstanding) as he becomes a prototypical leadoff hitter, an excellent baserunner, and his power is still nonexistent. His standard projection is Johnny Damon but he needs to develop Damon's power first. If not, he could end up as a .300 hitter with 10 home runs and 30+ stolen bases per year.

For non fantasy relevance, he's a great defensive center fielder but has a weaker throwing arm.
