I hope so. He hasn't looked real good the last couple of games though. I picked him up in my league, and I'm giving him a month to prove himself. ;-D

I'm not sold on him, but he's performed well so far. The 2 stolen bases are very intriguing. If you've got a dead spot in your roster he's worth picking up for sure.

Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

I picked him with my final draft pick this year (25th round). I was projecting him to hit 20+ HR with around 10 SB, and to put up otherwise decent numbers. From all accounts, he's a very sharp, humble kid with a great work ethic. That's good. Plus, they've got him batting clean up. CLE may not score a ton of runs, but he's likely to lead the team in RBI - and that should be enough to help your team in most leagues.

So far I've been pleasantly surprised. If he keeps running like this, 20-20 isn't out of the question. Not bad for a last round pick - or a waiver addition in many leagues!
