Maybe the new stance is working, maybe something is finally clicking, but I’ve seen this movie many times before and it always ends up the same - he goes 1 for his next 20 with 10 k’s after I pick him up.

This is gospel, but I picked up anyway.

It’s small sample size but he’s cut his K% by about 5% and increases his BB% from 5.6 to 9.1%. He’s also lowered his chase rate though his ground ball rate increased and his flyball rate decreased. His BABIP is .381 compared to .290ish in his career so I think his average should regress to a little less than the .294 xBA

Unpacking all that I think he’s going to sustain a good average from hitting more ground balls though he may go through power slumps. Middle of the order bat with a decent average should provide decent RBI and Runs opportunity with power upside and a decent to above average BA I like this cat

Well, he went 0/8 today. He looked decent, couple hard hit balls. We hanging in there for a few more games to see if there's still some fire left or we moving on? Hitting 2nd in that Jays lineup certainly isn't a bad spot for R/RBI on top of his HR prowess.
