While Max Kepler hasn't exactly been consistent this year, I think his season has gone very well. After the excellent series against the White Sox, Max's OPS is .889, second only to Shin-Soo Choo of the Rangers among AL right fielders. Kepler's WAR is listed as 1.6, again second among AL right fielders (behind Mookie Betts).
We are just about to the 1/3 mark of the season. Multiplying the traditional stats by three would yield a season of .276, 36 homers and and 99 RBI. I guess that would be pretty good!
Batting at the top of the lineup a 3 or 4 game snag could end up being a 1-20, but right now Max is rolling. Combined with his very good defense and youth (26 years of age), it looks like the Twins made a good move extending Kepler.
