Not sure about that.  From a prospect grade standpoint (hitting wise) he's closer to Trout than Albies.

Albies had a pretty highly graded hit tool coming up as a prospect and has illustrated solid power. 

Everything i've ever heard about him is his PD is more on the aggressive side then patient side. Which is more in line with Albies

Ozzie is actually 5 months YOUNGER then Hirura. Imange what Hirua's numbers would look like if he was asked to hit in the majors at his call up age. Would probably not look as pretty.

Hiura should make an impact immediately as he is as close to can’t miss as possible. [...]

Offensively? Carlos Correa. 

 

Defensively? Who cares this is fantasy baseball.

A rather silly take, especially when it comes to an NL player. Keiboom's leash became really short once it became apparent that the glove was going to be a problem too.

That’s a bold statement, hope your right.

Only because he was hot garbage on offense.

He was hot garbage on both. Thus, the leash was shortened. If one played, he'd been given more of a chance with the other.

We are on a fantasy baseball forum so I’m making the comparison of him as a hitter to Carlos Correa. Carlos Correa is great defensively so as an overall player they aren’t comparable. I’m baffled that i need to explain my reasoning when it seemed pretty straight forward.

His bat is legit. He is average to below average defensively and yet a top 15 prospect because of his combination of hit tool and power. 

 

So yeah in terms of batting numbers I expect him to be in that .290 25 range with .310 and 30 upside. Playing his home games at miller Park helps.

Id be surprised if he isn’t hitting 4th or 5th by the all star break. He’s simply a more talented hitter than Grandal and Aguilar. 

 

If he adjusts to major league pitching he projects to be a top half of the lineup guy sooner than later.

Yeah I endorse what @hailtoyourvictoris saying, comp wise...he is very Correa-ish, might even be a better hit tool and more power too...plus SB upside, it's a very good floor with absurdly high ceiling here...

Thanks for the input.  Any idea why the caught stealing are so high?
