Agree with the selling out for power bit, so I don't think he has nearly the speed or defense of Stubbs, but much more so of Yorman. As I've said since Day 1 (ie yesterday
) I think his best comp could be to another OF that was also drafted in the 2nd round out of Puerto Rico, Carlos Beltran.
(I'm thinking more the 30+ HR 20 SB, average defensive New York Met Carlos Beltran rather than the 40+ SB plus-plus defense Kansas City Royal Carlos Beltran.)
It will be interesting to see who starts in CF for Dayton next year, Y-Rod, Rosa, or Kyle Waldrop. Seems like one of the OF (Duran?) will have to be promoted to High A next year to make room. Or maybe Waldrop mashes in Billings this year so much so that he skips Dayton in order to keep the Carribean OF of Y-Rod, Duran, and Rosa together in Dayton?
