That would be his numbers last year if you prorated them over 600 ABs instead of 454. That would be knocking on the door of top 20. I'm sticking to it. I've been bolder and been right in the past. It's also his age 27 season, for those who believe in that sort of thing.
He better bump the HR/SB numbers up a little because that avg is going to drop due to a .390 BAPIP last year. Most of the projections at fangraphs have him in the .270's.
I don't see how he doesn't hit 20 HRs, and he's stolen 27 bags in a season before. There's a lot of gut in this call, but I think he can be top 20 even if he is in the 270s.
