6 for his last 16. Maybe the benching helped out? Traded him away in 1 league, but still have him in another and was on the verge of dropping him until his last few games. If he continues to hit well I wouldn't be surprised if he's inserted back at the leadoff spot. Ugh, I just want to drop him and move on... :-[

But still without a steal since Cinco de Mayo and only two steals since 4/25. The one thing he is supposed to give you is SB so if he isn't even doing that then all he is doing for you is BA and that isn't good either. I would rather move on from him than waste a roster spot on him. Maybe you regret it later but I doubt it.

He's been moved into the 8 hole behind AJ Ellis. Whenever Dee has been on first base, Ellis has been on second (0.442 OBP). So there has been nowhere for him to run.

And the pitcher is at-bat, which makes stealing bases less beneficial. Why risk getting caught stealing when the batter won't be able to knock you in anyway, and could just as easily sac bunt you to second?

the guy is supposed to have elite speed so no matter how you slice it no SB in almost a month is a problem. His legs are his one asset and the fact he isn't using them to his advantage kills his value.
