His career 57% groundball rate isn't going to allow him to hit 20+ HR,
He hit 18 in 2009 in only 520 at bats......he's already demonstrated he's easily capable of 20.
An improved FB rate and clean bill of health, and we'd be looking at a 30HR guy.
I personally sold him while he was hot for M. Moore as I believe him to be an injury risk and can get most of those stats back from Coco Crisp or another WW guy in my shallow, 10-team, 3OF league. I also could use the steals from Crisp and had power to give up thanks to Uggla/Hanley MI. I hope I don't regret it.
Just my take, but I think that's a criminally low return for him. As someone who drafted both Heyward and Moore in a very competitive 14 team $ league, I drafted Heyward in the 6th, and Moore in the 8th......since then Heyward's stock has gone up, while Moore's has gone down.
I'd have expected a considerably better SP in return, if I was moving a guy with Heyward's upside, personally..(and that's even if you aren't as bullish on him as I am)
