Also his career minor league avg I think is 284 nothing that special.He has good speed and will be very good but just like Franc alittle more
Nope I didn't read that, but still what does it have to do with this thread? So you saw some drafts where people overrated him, it happens every year to some guys.
I'm not getting your point, what does getting past AA mean at all? Also why do you automatically downgrade Hermida just cause the Braves promoted Francouer, it doesn't make much sense. Francouer only had a good 150 AB's in the majors, which is quite a small sample size, yet you seem to be basing that he is better just due to that. Why not compare their AA numbers last year were they both played in the same exact league and Hermida had obviously better numbers? On the strike outs the thing your not taking into account is how much Hermida walks, he had a lot more PA's because of that (over 140 to be exact). Francouer K'd every 4.75 PA's while Hermida K'd every 5.7 PA's, add in the walks and you have a more patient hitter by far.
