Hitting above .300 won’t be enough considering what is waiting right over his shoulder, yet he does not even do that.
Pirates management knows the team needs more than singles hitters on the corners in order to be contenders. His stat line needs to be more reminiscent of an Al Oliver instead of the Miguel Dilone line he has been putting up.

The honeymoon is over now. He needs to put up a full healthy season of something more than singles this year or else. I’m hoping he can and does.

If he can improve his average into the .280-.290 range, I think he could be a 100 run/30-35 stolen bases a year guy, and that would be impressive.
