Supposedly going to platoon with Hairston vs. righties.

He may develop 20/20 someday but this year he wont have much value. He will platoon all year and never face lefties. Possible top 10 CF down the road if he develops.

Whoaaa...lets take a step back here. He'll be 25 years old this year. Has a poor K rate, will struggle against lefties, has never hit 20hrs and has never stolen 20 bags and the bags he has stolen was with a poor success rate. I'd think he has a far better chance to never get more than 400AB in a season than put up a 20/20 season.

Good points but I was just parroting what a Mets minor league expert told me.
