I expected big things from this guy, and he started off cold, but has picked it up quiet a bit. what are your projections for the rest of the season?

i expecting very "solid" things from him as well. hes not a 35 hr type guy. he has great discipline at the plate and i would fully expect a .300 or even higher avg from up (up to around .315). 22-25 hr is the safe range id give him. hitting 2nd before hanley is great for his runs as well.

I like him, but those are a bit high IMO. I think he'll have a transition year similar to what Delmon did last year, somewhere around .300 with 17-21 HRs, 28 is pushing it I think, especially considering his slowish start.

I see around 20 homers, but 40 doubles, so a good amount of rbis. I think his power ceiling may have been overestimated as a prospect, but he has a chance in the future to crack 30 homers.

I've always heard people around here mention his place discipline but 7BB/28K this year doesn't really seem that great. Francoeur has better plate discipline than that.

His 86:186 Major League and 260:311 Minor League BB:K ratios lead to believe that the 7:28 will see an adjustment.

Could this perhaps be the next "Aubrey Huff - Why don't you hit a ding-dong" thread?

I hope this kid succeeds, he's got a lot of talent. He's a free agent in my 10 team league, I'm going to pick him up for Kelly Johnson.
