However, his LD rate with Balitmore and Chicago was around 23%, and his BABIP was only around .300, so I'm willing to believe he can hit .300 from here on out, not the .259 career hitter he is. And if he plays every day, he probably could steal about 15 more bases down the stretch, assuming health...

He was streaky in Baltimore. .310 for a month then .210 for a month. Right now he seems to be seeing the ball well and is hitting in a leadoff spot. I would ride this hot streak if I was playing anyone outside the top 10 SSs.

He is also a significantly better hitter when playing every day. His career averages are brought down by periods where he was a utility/bench player who only played once or twice a week.
