Next year I hope he can make some improvements defensively and hitting from the left side - where his set up is too elaborate, making his swing longer.
He had a .955 Fielding Percentage in Bakersfield. That is hardly poor. It was a little below average for the league, but it wasn't a shockingly low number. Who did they make a very negative impression on? What about them were negative?
