Add it up, and it's a breakout, of sorts.
Sure, the talent jump is huge. But I can't call that a breakout. One, it was based on a very high BABIP of .420 and two over 60 plate appearances. Basically his skillset looks exactly the same. That isn't a breakout. If he started hitting a ton of HR's then maybe we would talk breakout, but when its still just fast guy, lots of contact and high average.... its not a breakout.
