The difference is that Weiters never did anything at the MLB level.
Hosmer played basically a full season at age 21 and raked. He put up a legitimately solid .293/.334/.465
An .800 OPS doesnt even need the age qualification to be impressive. Not to mention he stole 10 bags.
Lawrie played 2 months and was one of the best hitters in all of baseball in that short time with his .950 OPS
Weiters didnt do anything close to that in his first season.
