An .875+ OPS isn't middle of the order? That's a great number five hitter to me. The Cubs have gotten an .859 OPS out of their #5 hitters this season. The Red Sox have gotten an .829 OPS out of the #5 spot. Brewers .775. Rays .845. Cardinals .858. I would be quite pleased with a .875 OPS and 25 homeruns out of the 5th spot in the lineup, or even 4th.
