If this guy could stay healthy, what kind of numbers do you think he would put up in the majors in a year or so?

He has great minor numbers, and a great K/BB ratio, so think he would be a stud

in 206 at bats he had 8 homers. If he got 500 abs that translates to about 19.42 HRs.

Given the fact that MLB pitching is a lot harder to hit I could see him going: .275-15 in a year or so. Not hardly news worthy for a 1B.

you make a good point, but he is hurt meaning that he doesnt get the chance to get into any grooves, the fact that he puts these numbers out after coming off injuries is even more impressive to me, that K/BB ratio tells me pitchers just dont know what to do with this guy, and he had a wrist injury and still managed to bat 288, thats better than 95% of the minors when he isnt 100%, i think that he could bat 300 with 25-30 HR if he could just stay healthy, i see him being like teixeira with a higher average and little less HR, but much better defensively, i think he could end up a Todd Helton type monster, but more like a Garret Anderson as far as numbers go, very consistent, not super good, but all-star worthy.

Casey is very good. Maybe the most overlooked minor leaguer. Playing in a pitchers league, with a bum shoulder, has done everything but turn those doubles into hrs. I have had the guy on my minors for 2 years. One of the best hitters to come out of hs in the last 20 years. A healthy Casey will be a force.

dude is a man among boys but was hurt. Maybe as good as a Helton away from coors field. I got a chance to see the young man play in the Cal League he will be huge in a couple of years

exactly my thoughts again, i dont know if he will be as good as helton, but 30+HR, a 330 BA, and 100+RBI look to be in his future if healthy, not to mention a few gold gloves like helton

maybe he will be injury prone, but he will be a much better hitter if he isnt, and a much better defender too, casey never has had power, just average
