So what are your thoughts on this kid? What do you project him to do and when do you think he'll arrive in the show?

I think he'll be on the cusp next year though a possible position change from SS to 3B may change that.

Which is why his value will likely drop dramatically since he offers little to no power whatsoever, something you need from a corner infield position. He's young, but he hasn't shown any power potential yet in the minors. For this reason, I do not consider him to be a valuable prospect. Showed very good speed last year but, again, not what you're looking for at his position. He's a poor defender in the middle of the infield from what I've read so there's little chance he holds either of those positions where he would carry some value.

Disagree that he hasn't shown power potential. He went off for about 7 homers in the last couple months last year, which isn;t a massive number, but significant power spike given his prior production and age. I don't think he look like a guy that will hit 35-40 homers but 25 is not hard to see, I can see Michael Young type production from him maybe (Young from a few years ago).

Got to see how he grown up though, hard to project as he's ahead of the curve - not proven anything so far.
