Going slightly better for him with fWAR, which likes his defense better. 1.1, on pace for ~4 for a full season. That’s not terrible, but I think the Phillies were looking for more.

He's been a plus defender by UZR, too. Pretty significantly, since his UZR/150 is on pace for a crazy 23. It will level off, but so far, concerns over his defense remaining abysmal seem to be somewhat misplaced.

Or, gasp, the numbers don’t mean much.

Outlier defense seasons exist, but it isn’t projectable.

I’m curious what year of this contract he bats under 220 for the entire season. Maybe soon.
