I think his production will be dependent of where he bats in the lineup. Last season Geradi (sp) wouldn't move him out of the bottom of the order. He has the potential to have a great OBP, and steal bases, he should bat in the 2 hole. Maybe with a new manager he will. I don't think it unreasonable that we see:

Do not forget that he is still only 22 yo and put up great numbers in the minors. He still displayed pretty good K/BB skills despite a disappointing season. I expect him to bounce back and put up good numbers across the board. But health seems to be a big factor in his success.


He put up GREAT numbers in the minors? You are refering to what exaclty? One season?

Yep the biggest concerns were the lack of power and health which he seemed to overcome in 05. His K/BB, OPS and speed numbers were all great during his minor league seasons.

Breakout or not, I think he is a good risk for the price and will target him if I can get him cheap.
