Good point Cam. You're always on top of things like that. This is why I don't get excited about prospects too much, though, until they at least get to high A/AA and sustain successful numbers at those levels. THEN they may be worth the excitement. At these levels he's playing in hitter's leagues, going up against a mixed bag of much younger HSers and collegiate guys from weaker competition conferences, and raw pitchers, and about a dozen other factors that can influence the numbers. What I DO like is that given his age, level of play in college etc he is doing exactly what he should doing at this level. Excelling.
