I'm not a big believer in spring stats, but this guy is lighting it up. The only reason the stats matter is it is making the Rangers realize they've got to get this guy some time in the majors. Anyone else keeping an eye on this situation? He could end up the DH over Delluci.

. . . remember Nunez's tear of 9 spring homers last year? Well if you didn't, nothing became of it. Same with Gonzalez - pass :-t

Geez, the guy is 23. :-t Did you remember Hank Blaylock's big spring a couple of years ago? Yeah, he had a garbage season after that too. What happened the year after though?Young guys need time tio develop. I'm not saying he'll be a stud yet this year but if he gets an everyday job, he can at least be sevriceable and for keeper leagues, he could be a great option.

AGon has been a highly regarded prospect (#1 prospect Texas has) the last few years. When, not if, he makes the big leagues, he'll be a solid player. I see him in a situation similar to Beltre....big hype early on a very young player. He'll have his growing pains, then develop into a solid MLB starter, if not a great hitter. I seem as a Sean Casey type though....solid .290 type hitter, 10-20HRs, 80-100RBI.

AGons' 2004 AAA line:

.304, 61 Runs, 12 HR, 88RBI, 39 Walks, 73 Ks in 457 ABs in 123 games.

Not great numbers....hell, not even the best on his AAA team....but he should be a good pickup in REALLY deep leagues or leagues that hold minor league prospects. For 2005, I'd pass unless Texas suffers a mass injury spree to Tex, Mench, Nix, and Hidalgo all at once.

I remember being upset when the Marlins traded him for Ugie in 03. That ended up working out but I still think he will be a stud. This season? Probably not.
