He is more than just a hustle guy, he has 54 SB in 347 PA. Yes he only has a .262 career average but the MLB average was .254 last season. So he is an average hitter with GREAT wheels
It would be great to have that kind of speed on the bench late in a game when you are down by only one run. Plus Choo will need to be sub'ed for defense late in some games. (unless Bruce is moved to CF and Choo to RF)
