Good for both parties I imagine since he'll have time to play in the minors this year.
Wow. I am surprised he signed so quickly. Excellent, and thanks for the update.
I do recall reading his fielding is superb, so I'm really hoping he will come up as a SS and stick at that position, that he won't get moved around elsewhere a la Justin Upton, or Moustaskas was rumored to, but hasn't (yet?). Being in an AL only keeper league, that is pretty important to me, and is my main concern. I really need a SS for the future, which is why I was eyeing him.
I've read he has some tremendous capabilities with the bat, that is bat speed is terrific, so I'm thinking he will generate some great power at one point. But I honestly am not to keen on his overall batting skills, or how much work he may need to put in before you start to see him get close to the pros.
