he's more of a 310-20-10 player but he'll have a nice OBP.
Honestly, I think that is his floor. Myers has been young for his level, and if it weren't for his off-field knee injury and infection, I'm sure he would have had an impressive showing last year in AA as he had in rookie and A ball. In the AFL once fully recovered, he arguably had the best performance in the league. Although he does hit more LDs, he does still have tremendous raw power and bat speed. As he matures, he will learn that he can turn on balls more often and turn many of those drives into HRs. I think he'll be a perennial 30+ HR hitter. The steals number is debatable, though. He is a very smart baserunner and is quick despite his build. He's not a burner by any means, but I think he could routinely steal 15 a year - that or none at all, depending on how his body matures.
