When is this guy going to come up this year. He could be the next Ryan Braun or Evan Longoria offensively. Should we see him in the next month?

He reported to camp this year with an injury that nobody knew about which killed his chances of making the club out of spring. He seems to have some maturity issues as well as a very poor glove at 3B. I think best case you see him up in June, worst case sometime after the All-Star break (July/August). His bat is big league ready, but his glove and head need some work.

his glove is holding him back, its terrible, worse then when Braun came up... and its not the situation they had when Braun came up where they could stick him somewhere like LF as you obviously have Braun in LF and Prince at 1B so those being the 'easier' positions to field or learn to field he is kind of covered unless he figures something out bigtime with his glove... nice bat but big league clubs aren't looking for fantasy guys they are looking for complete players...
