270 25 hr 10 sb potential, kinda a mini Nolan Reimold. Hes very streaky, ride him while hes hot, then dump him when he goes 2 straight 0'fers
The Padres are cycling 5 guys into 4 positions, and want to get plenty of AB's for Gwynn, Blanks, Venable, Kouz, and Headley, so in daily leagues I see him as a 5th OF if you can wait til the late game to see if he is in
I completely disagree with that potential. There is nothing that points to him hitting 25 hrs/season, at least not in that park. First of all he only has 48 HR in over 1800 minor league at bats. Second of all, since Petco opened only 3 Padres have hit 25 or more HRs in a season, Gonzalez, Greene and Nevin. Both Greene and Nevin only did it one time and Nevin had previously hit over 40 one season. I say his ceiling is more like .275/12/10 and this makes him non-draftable in almost any format. I agree with the above poster that this is a total mirage.
