Home Run Derby Participant Profile: Jose Bautista

I sure hope Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista is the real deal and not artificial, if you know what I mean, because this man can hit home runs and it is fun to watch.  Currently the American League leader in homers with 31, including the two he jacked out today, is on pace to beat his 54 he hit last season.

Prior to last season Bautista had not hit any more than 16 in an entire season.  Essentially he has come out of nowhere to be the top power man in MLB.  Oh yeah, and he can also hit for average.  He is currently hitting .332.  Wouldn’t he be nice to have on your team?
