If the OBP isn't a pure mirage then he's definitely got a place in the majors because it was the one part of his offensive game last year that was missing.

His current line is .307/.450/.658/1.098 with 9 HR and 23 BB in 88 AB (101 PA).

Not sure what more he can do at AAA to prove he deserves another shot.
