His MLB career stats spoke for itself as he had a batting average of 251 and registered 60 home runs as for August 2017. Though he possesses an athletic body and works hard in the field, his development suffered various setbacks along the way, and he battled three injuries in 2010.
On 30th August, he managed a single home run in a loss to Milwaukee where his low strikeout percentage of 29.9 deteriorates his fantasy value. The news is hitting him hard, as he just managed 17 home runs so far this season but still is a valuable member in a deeper setting.
