I think your initial comparison of Kemp to Pedro Cerrano is probably what spurred on this debate.
In any case, a ton of prospects have problems with off speed pitches. Hell, a ton of star MLB players have problems with off speed pitches. See Andruw Jones and his propensity to swing at every breaking ball down and away from the K zone. He did that for years and still put up great numbers.
The point is, it's way too early to say so and so can or can't hit breaking balls. But I know one thing. If he really couldn't hit a breaking ball, then he couldn't possibly put up those numbers at AA/AAA as a 21 yo.
