It's not that simple. Those 155 SB add value to his OPB. A .347 OPB in which the batter is at second base 155 more times is going to score more runs than a .347 OPB in which the batter stays at first every time.
I have no idea how to figure it out, but if the batter is stealing at an 80% rate, that would logically increase his overall production.
