Surprised not to see a thread for the big boy. Put up 17 homers, 62 rbi's, and a .322 average in only 61 games last year between rookie ball and low A. He'll probably start this year at high A and be up sometime in 2014 assuming the wheels don't fall off. He reminds me of a young Prince Fielder, just with a little less pop.

He reminds me of a young Matt Adams.

This guy is a lot closer to Prince Fielder than Matt Adams.  He has big time pop and has been tearing through the minors the past two seasons.

Granted it's been small sample sizes so we shouldn't get too worked up but it's hard not to when

Last year in 245 ABs he hit 17 HRs, 21 doubles, 3 triples, 48 Ks to 37 BBs between Rooke and low A ball as a 19 year old.

He's blocked at 1B. Nowhere for him to play on the Cubs, fellas.
You're television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. And the daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You're madness, Diana. Virulent madness. And everything you touch dies with you. But not me. Not as long as I can feel pleasure, and pain... and love.

Quick update. Was promoted with Bryant yesterday to Daytona.

Has put up a slash of .284/.364/.450, 17 HR, 57 BB, 76 SO at Kane County.

Power is lower than last year, but reports are he has a better approach. Taking what pitchers are giving him and going opposite way. Obviously, the stick is going to have to be better to get him in to the show. Hope the Cubs can keep him, but likely becomes trade bait for an AL team still.

Already smashed his first VogelBOMB at Daytona today.

Epstein has said before he believes that the NL might have a DH before Vogelbach hits the majors.

Man would that be ideal for Vogelbombs....because he's not going to play the field.  It's either DH or the USA men's slowpitch softball team.

this guy is one of my favorite prospects to follow. He'll continually be downgraded by prospect evaluators and prospect listings because of his size, but the bat is very legit and that's all that matters in fantasy

Be interesting to see what happens with him. Do the Cubs look to deal him to an AL team since he's probably best suited as a DH?
