He's the best player to come through Miami since Pat Burrell, in fact he broke all of his Freshman and some of his career records. He's about 6'2" 180 but has good power and above average speed for a third basemen. I'm not too sure on his ETA to the league though.

He has all the potential in the world offensively but his defense is suspect and may be moved to the outfield, althought the Brewers do need a 3B of the future so they may give him every chance to develop his defense. His ETA is 2007 at the earliest, and it may be later if Hall continues to play well and Koskie plays well.

He is a middle of the order kinda guy.. #3 or #4 type of hitter... Should be a stud, and move quickly, if he remains healthy ;-D

Offensively he is a very nice prospect that shows good power to go along with other tools. He has the potential to hit in the 25-30 HR range, though some do worry about his swing. It has somewhat of a hitch in it and is anything but a natural swing, he got by in college due to very good bat speed though it will be interesting to see what happens in the minors. Defensively he needs to improve at 3B if he wants to stay there, if not a likely move to the OF will await him.
