Expectations get out of whack when people see the #1 prospect ranking and then also see what Trout/Harper/Machado have done at such a young age. That's not normal. He's also ranked so high for his defense, his bat is not nearly on par with Trout/Harper.
i get that however the player that was comped does not make sense as he lacks pop and speed (Kendrick) which Profar has displayed in the minors... i do agree his bat is not on Trout/Harper's level and im not sure anyone suggested it might be however i do recall he outproduced Manny in the minors. I just think people are jumping the gun here, let the kid play a full time gig without getting yanked around all over the field before we cast judgement is all. Redrafters should of seen this coming... however his keep/dyno value is far from trending down at this point.
