I guess you decided to go for power.

He's got tools out the wazoo, sure, but he also could barely clear .200 in the Gulf Coast League, and has major problems making contact. He has 75 strikeouts in 65 career games. He's a prospect, sure, but he is a LONG way away, and in my system that makes him a C+ type until the numbers start living up to the hype.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

Yes the kid has the tools and yes, he does have a long way to go to improve his game but the fact remain that right now he is a kid. My kid, at the moment. I think my team is solid enough to take a wait and see approach on him.
