guys like Trout, Harper, Machado, Puig, etc have really made people so IMPATIENT with young prospects, WOW! look at guys like D Brown & C Gomez finally breaking out, not that I think he'll take as long as them but im just saying some players need time to develop... just bc hes got 150 MLB ABs and hasn't "lit the world on fire" does not indicate anything! remember in 2011 Trout came up and logged 123 ABs where he batted a putrid .220, and then 2012 happened... this small of a sample size doesn't tell us anything at all. and lets not forget some highly regarded prospects come up and "lite the world on fire" for a half season, only to sh*t the bed their next full season... so lets just give him a but more time to determine that hes only a 15-15 guy... with that said I did claim he could be a Ben Zobrist type of player with upside, that's not bad at all. guys like Zobrist and Prado are taken inside the top 7 rounds, that's pretty darn good... Profars going to have 2b, 3b, SS, OF flexibility, that's pretty damn good for a guy who was listed as "UTIL" when the season started and he was expected to "only" get 2B in the event that Kinsler was dealt/moved.... In Keepers, that's HUGE bc it now gives owners so much flexibility. I just wish he was getting more PT, especially over the guys theyre trotting out in Left Field. He needs these ABs and im shocked they aren't giving him them
