Tristan H. Cockcroft: No, he's slated to bat second, at least against right-handers. Ian Kinsler might bat there against lefties, and Catalanotto could sit in favor of a Marlon Byrd or Jason Botts in those instances. I'd say Cat lands somewhere in the 450-500 PA territory (400s in ABs), but that's still good enough to get him in the .300 batting average and 80-90 run ranges. The power should be lacking. That has value, but it's more to AL-only formats.
