Ok, but his prime is much different than all players in those important stats. Since his first HR this season after being dry for a month, he has been on fire. Not scorching but I think with the marine layer gone over Anaheim and his comfort level is getting there for the AL, he will be a factor again.
With guys like Trumbo and Trout in the lineup, I don't see how he can't improve. If he doesn't start putting up numbers like he did 5ish years ago, it would be safe to assume he's past his prime.
