I think that should go up. In the few years I've been here, his batting eye has improved exponentially. He no longer chases outside breaking pitches that are 18 inches off the plate. Atlanta would also be able to better protect him in their lineup. He gives 100% in every game--even if he looks nonchalant when catching balls in center--and he's a great teammate. Put in a winning environment, I think he'd excel.
