I saw on baseballprimer.com where he is projected to hit 30 dingers this year!

is he some kind of minor league super star?

They lie! He's a nice OF prospect for minnesota (since they have pretty much ALL OF AAA prospects, it seems like.)

My take on him is that he's talented, but doesn't do anything SUPER well, either power, average, patience. Hit 22 HR for an 800+ OPS in AA two years ago.

He's 25 right now....so, I could see him hitting 20 HR in the majors one year, but don't think he'd ever hit 30.

My two cents.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Actually he twice posted near .900 OPS in AA (at age 22) and in AAA (Edmonton, PCL, FWIW) at age 23, hitting 29 dingers. Last year, he regressed a bit, but still he's posted a lifetime 870 OPS in the minors and in his first 66 ABs in the majors has posted an OPS of 836. I'd probably rate him higher than Area 51, but lower than Primer. Of course, the problem with any of the Twins, is you don't know who is going to get the playing time.

Someone to keep an eye on though. ;-)

I hear of him as being projected to be a potential 30 hr type of guy, but also low batting average type because of a big strikeout problem.
