.00 to .25 red flag(a hacker)
.25 to .50 yellow flag(a potential hacker moving forward)
.50 to .75 not a problem( somewhat patient hitter, keep an eye on it)
.75 and above - (hitter with plate discipline, very likely to have success going forward).
I see what you're saying, but I gotta agree with doug, it's a bit early to make any real determination here. What he's doing right is currently blowing away what he's doing "wrong."
This isn't troubling in the way Bailey's command problems are troubling, IMO.
