I don't know how they feel about him, but I'm intrigued. He obviously overmatched the California League. The surprising thing to me was that they didn't play him much when he arrived in Carolina. At Bakersfield he was exclusively a third baseman, and I heard his defense there was very good, but now they're shuffling him between third, first and left field. So it's hard to tell. But at least he's playing more regularly now, and producing.
He was originally considered a very good prospect--a second rounder--but dropped off when he got to high-A and fell out of favor with the Braves. At any rate, he seems like a good pickup. If he finishes the season strong in AA, you would think he'd be in pretty solid with the organization.
