Thought his nickname was Dino. Suiting, dude is a beast. Totally missed on him even though all signs pointed to a break out year.

Does anyone have any concerns about his long term staying power?? Not taking this year but the next 2-5 years.

I don't believe the BA will stick around. Even this year, I think he drops back to the .270-.280 range, and I suspect he'll be more of a .260ish type hitter over his career. I don't think he continues his HR pace, either. In a redraft league, this might be as good a time as any to try to sell high on him (depending on what you can get for him). In keepers and dynasties, however, I'd hang on. He's a big man with a big swing who plays in a HR-friendly ballpark. While he may not be a .305-51-141 guy (his current 550 AB pace), I do believe he's a legit .265-35-100 type of hitter with upside for more over the next 2-5 years. In auction leagues where his price is likely low and in keeper leagues that tag players with rounds, the guy is worth his weight in gold...and at three bills, that's a lot of gold. 

 

A couple of good signs for me are his walk and K rates. He's walking more this year than he did last year...not a ton, but more (8.0% in 2017; 9.1% in 2018). And he's striking out less (30.2% in 2017; 26.7% in 2018).
