Is this just a case of other teams trying to bury him so he falls? It happens more than you might think.
Supposedly he's got a big hole in his swing (at least that's been the scouting knock on him). Maybe that's a concern or maybe he's just a guy who's going to whiff a lot on his way to good numbers, but scouts have worried about his ability to make consistent hard contact (supposedly he didn't fare well with wood bats for Team USA). BA rated him as the #11 overall prospect and said he'd be a back of the first round guy in a draft with a stronger crew of position players.
