I don't think his ceiling is near where the other two are on the list. His defense at SS is what might put him close to the majors but i dont think his bat will be special enough to make him fantasy special.
maybe not this year, but a 19 year old that holds his own at AA does have a special bat, even if it does somewhat lack in the power dept. I agree the hype train may be out of control, but I also think that the out of control hype train is now causing him to be overrated (if that makes sense)
From KLaw's last chat. Klaw Chat
Steve (Chicago) A. Escobar Or S. Castro
Klaw (1:55 PM) Castro.
Brian (Madison) Not liking Escobar's bat?
Klaw (1:57 PM) He doesn't walk and isn't going to hit for power. Castro's bat is special.
He also goes on to say that if Castro isn't the best SS prospect, he's near the top.
