Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
What are your thoughts on the guy. The numbers are crazy in the minors but then he has hit in a TON of hitter friendly ballparks so the numbers are a bit skewed. I have the #3 waiver pick but he's not someone I want to use it on. I have Andrelton and Jhonny at SS with Grant Green in the wings so Im not exactly hurting ya know.
I am reading however on certain sites that he has avg power and great speed and an amazingly good eye.....sssoooo??
I wouldn't get too excited over him. He's amazingly good this year in the PCL, but OPS tells the story in past years. He's good, maybe rosterable, but not a difference maker in my opinion. Any player, even a sam fuld may surprise you coming up for a month, I wouldn't pay anything for that 'possibility' though.
Lots and lots of non prospect AAA heroes that come up and don't do anything.
Watch for Miguel A. Gonzalez
he should be pretty good, but you never know about this year. longer term he's a .280-290 guy with 15-20hr pop, decent BB% so should stick in #2 hole? Some thought he won't stick at SS long term though. He's valuable, but maybe not taverns valuable, don't know if that helps.
