I never noticed him till he hit 2 homers last week. Whats everyone's view on this young player. His minor league numbers shows he has good power (21 jacks in 450 AAA at bats) and he has a great batting average, hitting over .300 in his seasons at stanford and minor league, and crazy oba and opa. He looks like the real thing with his minor league/college stats and his recent numbers in limited at bats.

For those that follow minor leaguers and prospects (I really haven't done this) what's your view on him?

he's going to be awesome, for this year he probably wont see enough everyday playing time to be a big factor, but next year & of course in keeper leagues he's a gem

This is frustrating. I have had him out of the line-up since he hasn't been starting and twice he has come through as a pinch hitter with a HR the other night and 2 RBI tonight :-[

They should have traded Shawn Green for a bag of used batting pratice balls and let this kid get at bats for next season :-?

Just acquired Quentin and Josh Johnson for Capuano and my #3 waiver position in a keeper league.

I am overjoyed right now.

Shawn Green should clear waivers, making a trade possible, but they are in a pennant race, and Shawn Green is a proven vet. Quentin will get his ABs, be it this year or next. Most likely next.
