Not Paulie slow, more like average. His lack of SBs and 2Bs are two separate issues. He hits like Pierre, same level of making contact but without the bunts and more liners than ground balls, but little gap power. SBs are due to a slow first step.
He did get hurt, broken leg, but will be fine for ST. As I recall he had a serious injury with Houston too that led him to miss a partial season, so that could be a concern moving forward. His bat is worth the risk, IMO.
