I can't believe what I'm seeing with this guy. Every time I check the box score he's something like 2/4, HR, 2 RBI. Unreal. However, I think it's important to note his splits. Against LHP in 69 AB, he's .478/.543/1.058 (he's slugging
1.058; that's not his OPS number!) with 11 HR. Clearly not sustainable. Against RHP: 183 AB, .295/.327/.486, 9 HR. It will be interesting to see how the league begins to adjust to him going foward in terms of matchups etc. His offensive production is certainly masking his defensive shortcomings (16 errors already)
Kudos to Yost for immediately plugging him into the 3-hole in front of Prince. The Brewers obviously believed from the beginning that the had something special on their hands.
