That doesn't mean I wouldn't trade him. He's hardly untouchable. But you don't say "He is what he is" after just one full season in the big leagues.
It's also a mistake to assume he's just going to "figure it out" and not continue to have the poor strike zone judgement/plate discipline/hacking swings after 711 big league at-bats.
That's 289 at-bats short of the much-quoted 1000 at-bats when you can assume you see what you get.
Not to mention a contract showdown coming with Boras within the next 1-3 offseasons.
Next year should certainly be telling.
