I asked pretty much the same question yesterday.

Did you get a meaningful response?  A consensus?  The strength of the team going in to the season seemed to be the outfield.  Now it's Cedric Mullins and a few guys that can't hit and/or can't stay healthy.

Folks seemed to think he'll be fine.

Wasn't a big talking point.

I think it's too early to tell.   His defense makes him a major leaguer (i.e. 25 man roster guy) even if he doesn't hit much better than this.   If he doens't hit better, it's just a matter of whether Diaz or someone else comes along and is good enough to put him in a bench role or if he stays the starter and becomes our #8 hitter.

Even this year,  his OPS is not much different from Kevin Pillar's career OPS, as I pointed out the other day.  And Pillar has been either a starter or part of a 4-5 man OF rotation for 7 or 8 years now.
