Definitely not impossible, and don’t think it should be shocking. He largely had to move off of the left side of IF due to arm action, not athleticism. That he can play a good 1B isn’t crazy to me. 

Side note: the updated site is nearly unusable on mobile. Way too many pop ups launched when doing normal activities (like opening threads and replying to posts).
