He runs the bases much like D’Arnaud, he is fearless. He will make mistakes, he will have his problems, but he is a guy that management has to keep in the lineup.

Please tell me he’s throwing the slider too. Most of his success in the first half last year came from increasing his reliance on the slider at the expense of the changeup (which he often can’t command).
