He was the Jose Bautista you know b/c he was selected by the Orioles as a rule V pick back in 04 at age 23 having never played above A ball. Bouncing around 4 teams in 04 and getting only 88 AB's will kill your developement. After only 1 year at AAA, he's basically had to learn on the job in the majors. Finally a team, Toronto, took the time with him and now it's paying off. I think he's the next coming of Jason Bay, late Bloomer. May not hit for the avg of Bay, but a player that will avg .250 to .270 with 30 bombs the next few years.
