I'm not as high on him as most seem to be.


I think that's a pretty respectable ceiling. ;-)

A lot of people seem to be of the believe that every well-regarded prospect must have superstar potential, but a well-regarded prospect is also a player that could turn out to be simply a solid starting player. All the above mentioned players are such that.

I agree with both... While this is respectable in terms of real life baseball or a fill in for a third OF spot in fantasy, it is not someone that I am drooling over. Drooling over in the sense that he is a keeper or an early round in next year's fantasy draft.

I am curious to see how he fares hitting in the 4 spot. And curious to see how long Gaston keeps him in there.

Yeah, I have no beef that he could be a real solid MLB player. In fantasy though, he is just another guy, IMO.
