He only batted .180 in Scottsdale last year...

Are those #'s for AAA because he isn't expected to hit the big leagues this year?

that's for the Arizona Fall League he played in: ... _786.shtml

I meant is your prediction "i'd expect very little...maybe .275 with 15 taters max..." for AAA.

That's in the Majors...

I actually stole that prediction from Baseball America and I happen to agree with it:

5. Jeff Mathis, c, Scottsdale Scorpions (Angels)

A perfect example of how little performance matters in the AFL, Mathis hit .180 in 50 at-bats, but stood out as the best in an impressive group of catchers. With three backstops on each roster, it's not uncommon for catchers to have a tough time finding any type of rhythm at the plate. Many, including Mathis, spend much of their fall schedule focusing on side work to improve their receiving skills.

"I like the way he goes about his business," the NL scout said. "He takes charge out there. I compare him a little to Bob Boone; he can be that type of hitter, hit .275 with 15 home runs and catch everyday." ... top20.html
