I take GCL stats with a grain of salt. He was clearly a better hitter than his competition, because the GCL plays in the same parks as the FSL for the most part I believe and he was pretty much owned in the FSL.
I give more credence to the hamate bone as to why his power dried up.
He still needs to hit though.
