.300/20/80/80 with ABs in the mid-400s, maybe?

He's going to have to repair his BB/K from last year, which could have been the opening siren of his slide to mediocrity. :-?

He still makes heaps of contact, but his BB/K has fallen from a crazy 1.15 to 0.66 to 0.34.
Scary :-o
Also, first time since 1997 that his ISO was under .200.

Im sure he will get a start here and there in OF as he feels okay and someone else needs the DH but how likely does everyone think 5/10/20 games is (for those with varying eligibility requirements?)

I think 5 is a good bet, 10 is iffy and 20 a longshot but others opinion?

If you truly believe he'll get some spot time, I'd hope for 5 by end of June, 10 sometime after the All-Star break, and I really wouldn't count on 20.
