And from the looks of what he has done in Cleveland so far, it looks like he is fully recovered.
Seriously, he was never very good in Cincy. A 250 hitter with a little speed in a hitter's park that helped his Hr totals and helped to mask a slow, undisciplined bat.

He's been a totally different hitter at the plate (pretty much the same as he used to be before this season) for the last few weeks. Just look at his K/BB ratio which is fantastic compared to the funk he was in earlier in the year. He's over his slump, and if you want a 25/25 guy (although obviously he won't finish with those numbers because of the prolonged slump but that's the level he's playing at right now) then pick him up now before someone else does.
I started a thread about his new approach about a week ago that you can find. I was flamed by about ten people who obviously have never owned him before but a few wise souls agreed with me. At the least he's someone you can treat as the last guy on your bench and dump if someone better comes along since other people underrate him so much. And if he pans out you have a fantasy average 3rd baseman, which makes a great waiver wire pickup.
