Otherwise, I think he could be an average outcome player in the league right now. I don't think bringing him up is rushing him, but he's a few years away from plus production.
A little weight room maybe, but the guy doesn't need conditioning. He is showing that he can hit so far, so all I ask is that the Sox don't F him up with forcing him to be something he is not. I will take a mega singles/doubles hitter that steals 30 and plays great D any day of the week. I don't care if he ever hits a HR in his entire career as the guy could be a modern day Nellie with speed.
