Not in fielding percentage. He's 12th which still isn't bad. But he's tops in the Majors in double plays, range factor (by quite a lot), and tied for first in defensive WAR.
And although he's played in fewer games than the other leaders he's second in total chances and assists, third in put-outs.
If could only hit.

Westy's hitting over .400 for Norfolk.

The Orioles carried Belanger for years despite a .220 career average.I think Mateo is a lot better hitter than that even though he hasn't shown it.Imagine what devastating weapon he'd be if he could improve his on-base average.He's well-nigh impossible to stop as a base stealer.

I've seen West play third; he's great. Maybe put him at second and Henderson at third. Leave Mateo at short for this year and see if he can improve his hitting.In the meantime, I wish they'd give Martin more chances as an infielder or outfielder.
