Brandon Waring is another guy who could make an impact in Dayton this season. I'm also curious to see how he handles advanced pitching. He's got enormous power so I wouldn't be surprised to see him belt 25-30 homers at Dayton but the most telling sign will be his BB/K ratio. Last year it was 21 BB/83 K in 267 atbats at Billings. He'll need to improve that some before he's seriously looked at as a top prospect.
I'd like to see him improve his BB/K rate as well but a lot of sluggers have similar rates and do pretty well IMO.
