That is not true at all.
He is easily thebest player Oakland got. He has amazing bat speed. Has a plus arm and plus speed. His final 2 months he hit well over .330. He just turned 22 and could start in right for the A's today, but should probably spend a couple months in triple A.
Obviously what he looks like and what his total numbers are are two different things.
Carlos has the potential to be a superstar and also by far the highest ceiling player OAK got in this trade.
