I could see 17 HRs for him to be honest. It took him a long time to turn his doubles into homers in the minors. If it takes him almost the full season to get completely square on big league pitching it could sap his power a bit. If he hits around .280 I wouldn't complain about power as we know it's in there somewhere.
