Todd wasn't even that great a hitter in the minors. He was average, which is why many were surprised he has done this well in the majors. Late bloomer? call it what you want.........but he is not horrible or great. He's average.
I think average is a good description of Todd if he was hitting around 250 to 260 and having a little more plate discipline. I hope he can adjust. When he was off to his torrid start I noticed he was laying off the outside breaking ball better than now. Hopefully he can adjust and stay back and I think he'll be a good piece.
