How does Alonso grade out/differ/project as a prospect to Jay Bruce? More or less power overall? More or less power to the opposite field?
I usually use the baseball cube scores as a good reference point, but I enjoy your posts on matters like this. Wanted to see what you had to say.
Alonso doesn't have as much power as Jay Bruce, but not many guys do. Jay Bruce is a 35-40 HR guy today. At age 22. Alonso probably has as much power as Votto does though with room to grow some, much like Votto. However he projects to walk more and strikeout less than Votto.
