ADP: 222

For those of you unfamiliar with what he did last year;

504 AB, 84 Runs, 162 Hits, 31 2B, 9 HR, 47 RBI, 53 BB, 8 SB, 321 Avg., 850 OPS.

-He had an unsustainable 40% hit percentage the second half of the year when he hit .359, so the .321 AVG is probably not going to happen again.

-8/13 SB is not very promising

-Only has OF eligibilty next season


-Has an excellent batting eye for his experience level. Has never had more K's than BB's in the minor leagues. 4 pitches per plate apperance last year.
-Will hit lead-off
-Has shown decent speed in the minors (34 SB in 2008) and will definately improve upon his 8 SB
-Only 25 years old (start of next season)

Keep on eye on the Uggla situation as this may impact whether or not Coghlan moves to 2B, thus increasing his value drastically.

Projections: .295, 95 Runs, 13 HR, 15 SB, 65 BB.

I will be avoiding unless he get 2B eligibility back. He has no plus skills that make him a decent OF option outside of deep leagues.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
