Silva has five solid tools and as a raw 18-year old he hit .280/.372/.462 - .834 OPS in the pitching friendly GCL. Yeah, he strikes out a lot right now but he also walks at a solid rate. You gotta remember that he was only 18 years old this past season and was in his first professional season. There's plenty to like about Juan Silva, IMO.
