Exactly, which is why I don't think it is presumptuous to project him for something like 85% of his production from a year ago with some additional upside. That's a very productive utility player. I was pretty sure that in the mocks I've done at mockdraftcentral (not spamming, just stating fact), Vlad was UTIL only. I've done a couple Yahoo style mocks and I'm pretty sure I would have noticed. Can anyone confirm his eligibility on Yahoo? Isn't it something like 5 games started or 10 games played at any position?
Is it possible that he didn't meet the OF eligibility requirement?
