In my opinion, it would be difficult for Jordan Schafer to under-perform what is currently expected of him.
While his defense is nice, the prospect of him becoming the Braves permanent leadoff hitter makes me slightly pessimistic.
And though his .236 batting average is better than a few others on the team, this along with his .301 OBP is much less than what I would expect from a leadoff hitter.
However, on the bright side, his performance seems to be improving.
This month, he is hitting .262, which is fantastic compared to the .212 he hit last month. Also, in the past week, he has hit .278.
I have hope for his improvement, though I am still much in favor of Prado hitting in the leadoff spot.
