I have not seen him. Do you think he can be a .280/.340OBA guy who might fit in the 2 hole with some base stealing/hit and run skills or is it more likely his lack of power will cause pitchers to go after him and not walk him meaning you have a #8 hitter.
.280 hitter with plus plus defense has some value. I remember the Cardinals used to have a guy like that. His name escapes me though.
