He has done that at every level. He struggles when he usually gets called up to a level for a time and then he hits. I'd say at this point it's neither one way or the other. But I have seen enough from him to believe he will get back to his hitting ways eventually. But that's just my opinion.
I was wrong about RZ minor league forum being a place where people would come to get the truth about the minors so they wouldn't have to be uninformed about the future of the Reds. People see what they want and toss facts aside as if they are mere opinions. Because a guy does this or does that statistically speaking he is stamped usually prematurely one way or the other. If there are facts to support that great, but without facts at this level you aren't neccessarily wrong or right. If we all learn one thing about the minors I hope that it's a fluid process and if you have the talent and eventually the skill you are legit, if you don't you aren't. The stats are a really bad way to make this assesment by themselves.
