#1 in WAR
#1 in Offensive WAR
#1 in OBP
#1 in OPS +
#1 in Runs Created (on a terrible team)
#1 in Power Speed

In many of these categories he is ahead of only Betts.
I read somewhere that some of the stats he's putting up this early in his career are putting him in company that only Babe Ruth is in.
