A svelt Venezuelan at the corner?

A slimmed down Miggy? Reports from Alex Avila indicate Migs is down 20-25 lbs this off season. For one I will believe it when I see it, but It still puts him at 250, but at 270 he is one of if not the best hitter in MLB. So will it affect his hiting, his power, maybe steal a few bases? Historically, has slimming down ever increased anyone’s effectiveness at the plate, or in the field? I will find out. We will find out.
