.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.
He is probably a 7/8 hitter. I am not sure he will be able to walk 50 times a year because pitchers will likely just feed him strikes once he gets to a level where guys can throw strikes when they want to consistently. You can watch him hit below:
