He had a good night last night, if he can replicate that level of pitch recognition and hitting what's pitched to him over trying to pull everything out of the park over a week or so, then move him to the three spot.
Due to his nationality, I am really pulling for him, but he does need some instruction. When he came out of the minors, it seemed like he was going to be a hitter who could spray it to all fields. He seems to be aiming for the long ball more often than not nowadays and it's problematic. He still has a very powerful load and swing, but someone has to teach him how to control it. A good off season of training could see that happen. I still have hope for him, though it would have been nice to have a Puig out there
