Why is this guy not on any prospect lists?

.349 avg. 27HR in 344AB AA Reading.

I think its because he's 28 and strikes out at an immense rate. A guy that is just now having success at age 28 isnt what youd call a top MLB prospect. Great numbers at AA last year, great enough to be a top 10 minor leaguer if he was 19-21 with about half as many K's.

Thanks I figured it was an age thing. I couldn't find his age listed anywhere.

In addition to his age, If I remember correctly, I think he got suspended for steroids. He might have been suspended twice because I went to see the Reading Phils and he was out for a month because of the suspension.
