anyone have any info on this guy? i guess his move from catcher to third hurts his value, but how do you guys see him as a third base prospect, anything to get excited about?

His original projections of .300 with 30 HR power look even more attainable after switching to third base. It seems like his bat would make him good enough to get a starting spot opening day 2008 but his defense still needs ALOT more work, pushing him back to a probable summer '08 callup. He has the power hitting frame (6'3 210), plate discipline (70/53 k/bb compared to basically 2/1 last season), and it looks like he's over the wrist surgery he had in early '06. I think that the Eastern League is also considered tough on hitters but I'm not sure on that.
