Curtis was a really good contact hitter with a lot of speed. Curtis stole 116 bases in only three years with the Angels, which is the ninth most in team history. He stole 43 bases during his rookie season, the 13th most ever in a season. Curtis followed that up by stealing 48 bases the following year, the ninth most in a single season.
