Are these minor league K/BB rates achieved at ages 19-22? Or are they major league K/BB rates achieved after players reached maturity?
We are dealing here with the prospects for a guy who just turned 22, yet you are comparing his numbers to fully formed major league performances.
Show me any minor leaguer in the Reds system and I will find flaws. The issue is projecting forward, not assuming static performance.
