I think that will be the biggest question...is he penciled in as a full time guy or not? Looks like the numbers like his defense pretty well so he isn't a liability there. I'd expect pretty simlar numbers overall...maybe a dip in SB...not sure if he'll be a consistant 20SB guy or not. But the biggest question for me at this point will be playing time...is he a full time starter? There isn't a ton of data to look at yet but it doesn't look like he's much of a hitter against righties right now...that may limit how much he plays?
Yeah, I should have specified that, as I did notice the drop off in AB. I guess I was assuming, as Skin Blues pointed out, that he'd be a full-time player, because I can't see any reason he shouldn't be. I'm interested to see your projections for him, J.
Yeah, I was under the impression he'd get more ABs as well but seeing James had him at 400 I wasn't sure if there was something I was missing. Anyway, I'd still like to see him this spring...is he in good shape, does he and the organization plan to let him run, is he batting at the top of the order, is he a full time guy, does he play well in spring...I'll likely tweak my projections on him a couple times this preseason. Looking at my spreadsheet I haven't really gone out on a limb either way with him yet...more of the same...
.254/.342/.418(If he is a full time starter he could certainly get 600AB if he continues to hit near the top of the order)
65RBI/82R (assuming he gets most of his AB's at the top of the order)
