He has the tools but at this point he needs to start putting them together. Maybe ditch hitting from the right side. Bunt more for hits. Take better routes on defense to use his speed. Refine his stolen bases. 

He’s tough so I hope that doesn’t lead to stubbornness. A lot of the little things he needs to do involves some pride swallowing. Maybe he adopted the swing for the fences mentality that the previous team had. 

On the other hand what got him to the majors was NOT being a slap hitting, bunting, type of player.  As a LH hitter he really turns on the ball well and looks like mostly a pull hitter.  The ML pitchers may have adjusted but I wouldn't buy that explanation for his struggles in the minors this year.  Could just be the dejection of blowing his first and best chance in the majors.

For him this season, he’s actually hitting well worse as a lefty (.497 OPS) than as a righty (.654 OPS). He’s actually hit lefties better this year than he typically has, it’s just that he hasn’t hit a lick on his traditionally stronger side. Either way, he’s totally out of whack, so I hope he can work his way out of it.
