I fail to see your point. Most 18 year old kids in their first full season are going to play in rookie ball. He signed late last year and only got about 2 weeks of a season last year and rookie ball hasn't started yet this year. The fact that he didn't go straight to Dayton at age 18 as a 4th rounder means he was a reach?
