Poor DJ has provided a lot of ammunition to his critics the last few weeks.    

I’ll just say this.    The guy has played about 400 games in the outfield in the minors.    I’ll defer to the people who have watched him a lot down there, rather than putting too much weight on a couple of clumsy plays he’s made during his brief time in the majors. But I’ll certainly admit that he hasn’t looked great out there in the 25 games he’s played the OF in the majors.  Let’s hope he gets his act together.   

Hey, if he can get through this and be productive next season - which I think is a reasonable expectation, I see him as being a fan favorite.  There's clearly no question about his effort out in the field, and he has some ability - being a former 1st rounder who had a very good season in AAA.  .

In Frederick and Bowie, I always thought his bat was a lot better than his defense. He left a lot to be desired.

Chris Davis was a fan favorite.  I am not impressed.  😉

Stewart has a .973 fielding percentage in left in the minors.  I think what you see is what you get.  I don't expect him to get better defensively.  He may hit better as he gets use to the majors.

Chris Davis may be relevant to the conversation once Stewart is making more than two one hundredths of what Davis is making.

Equal time requires me to say that Stewart made 3-4 very good defensive plays today in addition to going 3-4.    His average is up to .263 after a very cold start.

He just missed out on a chance for a very rare unassisted double play for an outfielder in the top of the 6th inning.

After catching the ball for the 2nd out of the inning, the Rays' base-runner was already well beyond 2nd base and did not even attempt to try to get back to 1st. Stewart ran the ball all the way back to the infield, but flipped it to Trey Mancini at the last second.

I guess he wanted to pad his assist totals.

I saw a nice diving catch when he came in on a line drive in the game today.

Still want to see how he plays every day for the rest of the year, I hope he gets consistent at bats for the rest of the month and September.

I'm sure Hyde will accommodate that if DJ can avoid taking a fly ball off his head again.

Well, at least he didn't do this:

Overall .656 OPS. Which is pretty good considering his really slow start he got off to. 

Last 7 games - 24 AB 3BB/4SO. 1.161 OPS
