The best batting eye on the team is...

Jordan Schafer?

I know, I know, Chipper has one of the best batting eyes in all of the majors (ever), but JS looks like he may be close to being on par. He is leading the team by far with 12 walks, and he has a .380+ OBP even while sporting a batting average of only .268. It is not easy to have an OBP 110 points higher than your .avg, especially for a rookie.

He had that very ugly string of Ks when he was pressing, but when he is comfortable like he is now, he works the count full like nobody on the team but Chip. Jordan leads the Braves (and is 31st in the majors) with 4.09 pitches seen per at bat because he constantly has 2-2 and 3-2 counts. That patience would work great for allowing the heart of the order behind him to get a read on pitchers, plus leading off he could finally begin to utilize his speed a bit more.

Bobby needs to put him at the top of the lineup already.
