Setting the World on fire for all of 350 ABs @ AA kinda loses a lot of its shine when he moves up to AAA and watches both his OBP and SLG drop at a staggering rate, most of which was due to Chris forgetting how to, or struggling to take a walk @ AAA.
I wanna see more of him @ AAA definitely, but I hope he returns to his AA form @ AAA.
I'm not saying he is a can't-miss guy. But even a .790 OPS at AAA is not bad, even ignoring his AA tear. But in 1,900 PA's in the minors, a near 830 OPS is a pretty good resume. And 24 years old is right about a normal trajectory for most medium prospects. It's not like he's a 27-year old fringe guy.
