Re: Reds land 3 in Baseball America's Southern League Top 20
To me, the encouraging thing about him is that he has moved seamlessly from level to level. In fact, on each step up from Dayton--including the majors, in his brief stay--he has improved both his batting average and OBP. He also acquitted himself exceptionally well last year in winter ball, against excellent competition. The message seems to be that the better the competition, the better he fares. That seems, somewhat, to soften the concerns about his professionalism at the plate.
