Anyone know if he's a good 2nd half player? 


His career 1st/2nd half splits are fairly similar.  He has quite a few more ABs in the 1st half due to some 2nd half injuries over the years, but his per-AB stats are very similar.  Very slightly higher HR rate in 2nd halfs, but it's so small I wouldn't take anything away from it.

I'm concerned about his hard hit rate this year versus years past. All of fangraphs projections systems have him at a 220 ISO ros but I im thinking those projections may be overly optimistic. His hard contact is noticeably down. He looked like he was turning it around in May but since then and specifically the last few weeks his hit rate is: soft 33% med%33.3% hard33.3. Small sample size but regardless compared to 2015 and 2016 it is concerning.

What is everyone doing at this point? .218 average and .717 OPS with the calendar turning to August. 


Dropped his a** a long time ago. There are plenty of other options available on the wire especially with all the call ups and potential call ups.

Anything can happen in August and September. Especially Sept with all the call ups and a lot of the league mentally checked out.

 In a division with Boston, New York, and Tampa fighting for playoff spots, I wouldn't count on his opponents being checked out.

Now I know why my season is in the trash because this guys has been hot garbage all year. Finally going to drop him but sadly it's too late.

It will still feel great though.  Pull the trigger, show that turd who's boss.
