He also has made 10 outs on the basepaths this year and has a very high K rate for a leadoff man. I agree that he shouldn't be given away and for this team, his numbers are solid. However, I do support moving him off the roster if Hahn can swing it. I think it will be an important step towards re-making this team. The Sox need to improve the baseball IQ, improve the defense, and cut down on a strikeout heavy lineup. Removing De Aza from the mix is a start towards improving all three items.
