Patterson needs to give up his power stroke before he becomes an effective major league player. He swings for the fences every at-bat, and while it sometimes pays off, it is extremely detrimental to his OBP. He needs to realize that he's a lead-off man, not a power hitter.
Until he does that, he's just going to be another kid with untapped potential. He's one of these players that's a LOT less valuable in real life than he is in fantasy.
