Have you seen Dunn play?
Murton's year has been very similar to Encarnacion's: patient approach, uses the whole field, hits for average, lots of doubles, and looks like he might be a very good hitter in the near future. He struggled in the first half, lost some playing time, but came on pretty strong (.900+ OPS) in the second half. At the very least, he'd be an outstanding platoon partner/ 4th OF, if the Reds signed someone else to replace Dunn.
