Depends what your scoring is like. If OBP or BB (offensive) is a catagory, then that decreases his value, because he simply doesn't walk. I honestly think he is much better in real life than in fantasy, and tend to avoid him, unless he is sitting around really late in comparison to his projected value, and I need an OF.

I just play in a 5X5 and a 23 year old that had nearly 29 HR's and 103 RBI's in his first full season seems like a pretty good 3rd outfielder. The best 3rd outfielder would be the 21st guy on the board and the worst would be the 30th, in a ten man league. I think those numbers and upside put him easily in that range.

Not that it was a dramatic improvement, but his walk rate DID improve a little in the 2nd half.

In the first half, he walked only 8 times in 369 ABs, or 1 every 46 ABs.
In the 2nd half, he walked 15 times in 282 ABs, or 1 every 19 ABs.

He was batting only .185 on April 29th, and he struggled in September after the heaviest workload of his young career.

However, he batted .280 in May, .248 in June, .297 in July, and .266 in August.

If he can even be a .280 hitter with a .320 OBP, he's a lock to be a top 30 OFer and his value is even higher in points leagues.
