I've considered him. He was raking before the wrist injury then he wasn't the same when he came back. There was actually a period of May-August where he only hit 1 HR in 67 games while he was playing thru the injury.
He did hit .302 with 8 HR and 9 SB in 78 games before the all star break.
In the end I think he's 20-15 this year. Without the wrist injury last year he probably hits 25 HR and he was always supposed to be a future batting champion. So at least there is upside and position flexibility if you take a chance on him. Maybe an Alex Gordon type year?
a 30/15 guy is worth more than a 20/20 anyway.
20/20 is a nice milestone in real life but it's meaningless for fantasy. it doesn't matter if a guy falls a little short on one side if he goes way over on the other. As long as he posts respectable numbers in both he's a good power speed option.
People tend to overpay to get a 20/20 guy but there isn't a lot of them (McCutchen), but there is a lot of people that can offer smaller amounts of power with their speed or speed with their power that are just as valuable and a lot cheaper.

I'd put Werth as a possible 20/15.
Ryan Roberts will likely fall just short in both categories.
Did anyone mention David Wright yet?
Danny Espinosa could come close.
I know he hasn't showed the power yet, but I have a feeling this is finally gonna be Dexter Fowler's breakout year. Although he'd be probably closer to 15/30 were he to break out.
