If he takes another step forward in elevating the ball, there could be a positive slingshot in regression (progression?) The issue was how hard Reyes fell off. Again, we got nine of these beauts this year. As for his power and swing, well, he worked on that as well. So the first thing I see here, which is one of the few knocks on him, is he hits way too many groundballs, hence sleeper. At the end of the day he was an above average at bat who made pitchers have to be very careful when they pitched to him. He made only three starts in right field, DHing the rest of the time.
