What is the story with this kid? Is his slight resurgence for real? Will he live up to the billing of the next Wright? What is his upside and what numbers might he be putting up in coming years?

There is no way that he is the next Wright. In fact, he figures to wind up more like the next Joe Randa as far as fantasy is concerned. He is in MLB for his glove, not his bat. He is not a bad hitting prospect, but not great either. He will probably be a marginal starting fantasy 3B one day. He is one of those guys who is much more valauble in real life than in fantasy.

I doubt he reaches Wright's level ever. I'd say think more along the lines of Melvin Mora :-?
