His new OPS if you include steals as an extra base would be 1.055 which is quite impressive for a guy who's only hit 6 HRs in almost 1500 PAs.
That doesn't even count how he could get in the mind of the opposing pitcher, break up potential double plays, and play high caliber defense.
Very excited to see him in the majors sometime down the road.
You'd need to factor in the CS numbers as well. A base runner needs to steal successfully about 80% of the time for it to be worth the risk of getting thrown out.
