Kendrick has been blessed this season with a .410 BABIP, compared to his .389 BABIP throughout the rest of his minor leagues. Either way that's a high number, and something that will probably drop at some point. Either way, he definitely a good prospect, but I think Gordon will greatly surpass him in fantasy value.
