Jeter is a terrible defender and he's my favorite Yankee of all time. Zero range.

On the other hand, there are yet to be a measure of advanced statistics that have proven as reliable indicators to judge youth and their projected development. I understand that Kreider has not progressed at the rapid pace that some were hopeful for but there is no reason to berate or lower the expectation that he can turn into a very qualified top 6 player.
Perhaps it doesn't tell to judge development, but it does tell how a player plays in a given stretch of games in a season.
