Perhaps it's injury related. But it raises the question if he will hit for enough power for a first sacker.
He slugged .591 in 240 plate appearances in the second part of the AAA season in a park that depresses power. I don't expect him to do that in the majors, because hardly anyone slugs .590 in the majors, but I wouldn't be concerned with his power given that for a year he was coming back from a hamate injury.
