That said, how about this Perez kid... umm... err... adult? Seems to be raking.
As long as he capitalizes during the 25% of the time he doesn't
look clueless, he'll be fine. He'll never hit for a high batting average nor make lots of contact, but he'll compensate for that with elite speed, elite defense, and above-average power. But back to the topic . . .
You have to be pleased with what Felix Perez has done so far. Not including his Dominican numbers, this is what he is on pace to do over 162 games:
G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS TB GDP HBP SH SF IBB
162 735 665 87 226 41 12 6 81 23 17 35 104 .339 .394 .461 .855 307 12 29 0 6 6
If he can do that consistently, he'll be a superstar, but unfortunately, that's pretty unsustainable. He needs to stay in AA, work on his plate discipline, and figure out what adjustments he needs to make once he's facing the same pitchers for the second/third/fourth/etc. time.
