This season, similarly to shortstop, should manifest relatively the same results as last season in right field. Jose Bautista played a pedestrian right field last season. In 1,080.2 innings, he cost the Jays four runs defensively and was ranked slightly below average in that category.
With that said, it’s not like he doesn’t make up for that and more, hitting .286 while smashing 35 home runs.
It’s hard to predict what his defence holds as he continues to age but it’s most likely 2015 will be much the same as it was in 2014: serviceable at least.
