He's going to his .270 - .280, probably score 90 runs or so and steal 25+ bases. He's not going to hit HRs and he's not going to drive in more than 50 runs I would say.

He's all about league size as to whether or not he's worth adding. Reality is that he's not very good, but from a fantasy perspective he can be useful (a la Michael Bourn).

hell if this is what the kid can do he will be scooped up by me .275 with 90 r and 25 sb sounds awesome to me, in a 20 teamer and hes still floating around... we talking like a chone figgins type, maybe not quite as many steals or?

I have him in my 10 team NL only, and yes he's off to an awesome start but he will not hit .275 on the season, im thinking more like .260-.265..probably not 25+ SB either, more like 20 tops (although he has good wheels, he still gets thrown out a lot). He's useful in my league as a 5th OF but I would not pick him up in anything less than a 15 leaguer mixed.

I'm curious as to why you guys think he's going to hit in the .260-.280 range. He consistently hit .300 in the minors and hit .299 & .294 in the majors the past 2 years. I think health is his bigger issue and I could see the SB anywhere from 25-40 based on his minor league numbers if he gets 450+ ABs.
