What is his outlook for this year? Does he improve on his numbers?

I see him having some improvement but I don't think he will make any leap forwards. The biggest question is going to be that avg and I don't see a lot of things that make me think he can get that above .260 next year. If he can then everything changes but if he hits around .260 then you should see marginal growth maybe a 15 Hr, 95 R, 70 RBI, 35 SB.

He's nearing his golden year (27) and I do think the power increases. I'm not expecting huge increases, but I do think he projects to get better. He had a really rough year last year. But there are some reasons to think he's getting better:

1) His BABIP dipped below .300, and I think because of his speed, he should be able to get that number up.

2) His HR/FB% went down pretty far (7.5% from 11.6%).

I think a lot of these numbers normalize, maybe meet in the middle.

He should project to something like this: 80 R, 140 H, 16 HR, 60 RBI, 30 SB, .255 AVG.
