Some of these Obp are pretty gracious. Granted he can continue up the learning curve and get the with more patience or more power, I'm hopeful that he will but I wouldn't bank on it.
My expectations are for him to play healthy all year and adjust to pitchers adjusting to him.
Maybe a .285/.335/.465
Maybe less, maybe more and definitely some solid defense on the hot corner
This is probably the most realistic line he would have. Possibly a bit higher SLG, but I do see an OPS north of .800
yeah i think that will be pretty accurate. maybe an extended time working with our better OBP guys will help him out on that front. safe to say he will be getting better the more experience he gets though. just gotta hope he can make good adjustments
He'll have his share of K's, but if he can get the BB up a bit the OBP could see .350. hes a smart ballplayer and has improved consistantly since he was 18. I can see more improvement from him while adjusting to MLB pitching.
