Those are pretty decent rates... Doesn't the fact he has only had 75 career AB's against LH make a case he should see more of them and hit them decently at a lower level before taking on close to ML ready pitching?
BTW what os his career OPS vs LH's? I don't know where to find it...
If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...
Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...
