Much-maligned shortstop had his usual hacktastic year at the plate, posting a .271 OBP. … Did hit 13 home runs. … Not the guy you want up in a clutch situation: Hit .154 in 78 at-bats in late and close situations. … Range is lacking, although the metrics graded his defense a little better than recent seasons. … Hit .304 with two home runs against Arizona.
