I don't know if anyone else has noticed but the dude is absolutely annihilating opposing pitching so far in ST. Yes, I know it's just ST but even so, the numbers are just absolutely insane:
Here is his slash line is 27 AB's:
.407/.484/.1074 with 5 HRs and 11 RBIs.
Yes, you read that correctly. 1.074 is his SLG, not his OPS. He has more total bases (29), than AB's (27). That means his OPS is 1.558. Albert who?
To reiterate, I'm aware that ST numbers should be taken with a grain of salt but if this is a sign of things to come in the near but not necessarily immediate future, it makes me wonder if trading him for Kazmir wasn't such a great move.
