20 year old that I've heard is one of the Top 5 pure hitting prospects in baseball. Anyone know how he's been playing this year?

Thanks, but I was kinda looking for some insight from someone who follows the minor leagues or has seen him play a few times. Just wanted to know if he's been playing 1B or if they moved him to the OF. But nevermind I found some recent info on him and he's been playing center. Batting .310/.406/.586 in 101 ABs with 8 SBs and a couple homers in a pitcher's league. I don't think it'll take him more than 2 years to see the bigs.

Lol. That's what he's listed as on ESPN.

The most likely reason why ESPN lists him as a 1B, is that he was drafted as a High School first basemen.  They moved him to the outfield once he started playing in their minor league system.

You're still reading the wrong stats...

In his 2 years in the minors, he's put up stats of:

2011 - 15 homers, 77 rbi's, and 32 steals with a .312 average.
2012 - 12 homers, 40 rbi's, and 20 steals with a .330 average.

Overall, he has average power and plus speed. In terms of ceiling and floor:

Ceiling - The power develops as it is supposed to as players mature and he becomes a complete player with his speed and ends up being consistent and producing every year. I'd say 20/30 hitter with a .300+ average.

Floor - The power either doesn't develop or does develop but takes away the speed from his game. Without the speed, he just becomes another 1B, but speed comes from very few players there, so losing that aspect knocks his pedigree down. There's also always the high chance with minor league players that they struggle to adapt to major league pitching. I'd say 10/15 with a low average of .250 or so.

I believe he will fall more into a 15/20 type of player that is very valuable in leagues. As for his average? That al depends on his adjustments. A lot of top prospects have high averages in the minors (that's what makes them noteworthy), so it'll either stick around .300 or maybe drop to around .280ish depending on majors pitching.

Also, in terms of when he comes up, I'm thinking the ETA is maybe September this year or mid-season 2014, assuming he doesn't have a drop off.

Given Miami's firesale this offseason, there's a decent chance he plays a significant number of games with the fish this year.  If not, next year at the latest.  He profiles as a plus power hitter for average with speed.

Without the speed, he just becomes another 1B,

Apparently he might stick in CF, so a move to 1B in the near future is unlikely. I think it's reasonable to think he'll put up numbers similar to Choo's best years for fantasy purposes, with a chance to be better.

This is Loria's team.   Whatever is cheapest, will be.  Really kills me that this is what the Expos franchise has devolved to.

Translation = no incentive to call him up before July 2013 to delay service time.   The longer we see him sit after July - the more likely they could do the exact same routine....for 2014 (3 month delay).
TBD Baseball 2011 League Champion - 20 team, 7x7 (5x5 plus 2B+3B, BB, QS & Holds) Dynasty - Division winner, and squeaked through playoff finals!
AL-only 5x5, Roto - 2010 & 2011 league champion
RotoWood 2011 League Runner-Up - Mixed Roto regular season / H2H playoff 5x5 format - 3rd place reg. season, lost in finals

Been a blast everyone - take care, and remember to abide by the CoC, and to help your fellow community out - it's what's made the Forum community great!

P.S. My passion is primarily FBB - you'd LOL at my football track record!
