But this year? It could be, but batting practice vs big league breaking pitchers is another story.
Color me a doubter him hitting above the OF league average this year just because of the jump he is making.
Most likley by 2010 end you will have been able to find similar numbers via the WW.
I just don't see this. Heyward hit better as he moved up the ranks.
Myrtle Beach - .296/.369/.519
Mississippi - .352/.446/.611
Gwinnett - .364/.462/.364 (3 games)
Obviously his slugging went down at AAA, but did it really? 3 games is no sample size, which could be argued the other way, but the fact that he hit in those games has to mean something. I think it's also worth mentioning that over the three levels, he posted a 51BB/51K line. His patience and understanding of the strike zone amazes me. I think it's also worth mentioning that this Spring he's posted a 9BB/6K line. Oh, and sense we're talking about the Spring now, who can forget the 450 ft bomb off of Scherzer with a 0-2 count?
