He's only 23 and his body type should equal more power as he gains muscle. He's listed at 5'10 195 and thats pretty impressive when you consider the speed he has. By the pictures I posted in my rankings, you can see he has a strong muscular frame that I think he builds on. The winter league numbers were something I noticed as I did the ranking but I have no idea where those stats are now. I expect you'll see more pop from him this year than you'll expect to see. Compound that with his speed potential and you might really have something. That being said, he should still be the starting 2B and they should move Uggla to 3B as the Marlins defense with Ramirez and Uggla is horrid.
