This is another guy that I'm intrigued by but have been unable to find much discussion on. Still extremely young at just 22, but already a starting gig in the majors is a good sign, even if it's in the anemic Houston offense. What kind of skillset does this kid have? How highly touted of a prospect was he? What kind of numbers can we reasonable expect from him in his rookie campaign, which is off to a very nice start thus far.

Low K, low walk guy with a little power and a bit more speed. I'd say his absolute ceiling is around a .290 average with 15HR/25SB, but you should probably expect something closer to .280/10/20...

I'm definitely intrigued by him. Just picked him up as a backup 2B to fill in on off-days.

Yeah, I'm considering picking him up to back up Cuddyer (2B is the only position that I don't have a back up for)...
