He used that speed tonite to turn a line drive down the left field line into a triple.

You don’t see many triples to the LF corner.

He was caught stealing today. He had been on fire lately stealing bases. He's played some center with Mullins in left or DH. I think he's in center next year in Norfolk.

Yeah, he's a surefire CF defensively. No doubt he sticks there.

Good to hear - hope he can hold down center in Baltimore for the next 10 years or so, starting in 2021, I guess. Watching Boston play earlier tonight, it's quite an advantage to have three great outfielders. Maybe Hays and Diaz can round out a good outfield eventually.

Looks like he turned it on around second and basically out ran the baseball. Not necessarily the smartest base-running move with 2 outs but the speed was impressive.

Feels like he's starting to channel the 2018 Frederick McKenna.

He took a bit to adjust to the league it seems. Hopefully he can finish out the season strong and go to Triple-A next year and adjust a big quicker.

Working on stuff, perhaps.   .633 OPS through 68 games, 1.002 OPS in 28 games since.    Let’s see how the final 40ish games go.

He was a mess when I saw him. Who knows why? It's entirely possible he was just in a slump, or even that he was trying to fundamentally re-work his swing based on some feedback from the new regime. You just don't know. Luke and Tony aren't that down on him yet, so I'll hold out hope too.

One or both of them see him as a 4th OF.  I wouldn't call that high on him either.

Luckily, I didn't. :)

He wasn't 4th OF quality the day I saw him. That's how lost he was at the plate. It's one day though. In the grand scheme of things, it's 100% meaningless.
