He's going to get picked at least 20 slots before he should, so I figure we might as well get it over with. He was #17 last year and #12 the year before. However, he's coming off the best year of his career, so maybe he'll jump ahead of Todd Frazier and get comparisons to Jay Bruce (forgive the hyperbole). But in all seriousness, if he had gotten a September call-up and gone 4-for-9, he'd probably be a top-10 prospect according to RZ. If he were to go 2-for-19, he wouldn't even be in the top-30. I think we often make the unfortunate mistake of overrating a prospect until he gets his first taste of failure. Dorn will struggle in the majors imo while other players (i.e. Mesoraco) face adversity as early as rookie ball and get written off and knocked down in the rankings before they're even old enough to graduate college.
