too bad he has trouble making contact. I'm thrilled he won the ASG MVP, but realistically, he's got a leadoff hitter's skillset: good OBP, speed, but he struggles in the leadoff role. he has little to no power, and he struggles to make contact. He lays off bad pitches, but can't seem to hit good pitches. He's got tremendous holes in his offensive game, but is seemingly very good defensively.
I'd promote him to Chatt just to see if the OBP can be maintained against better pitchers.
