Or he simply is an older guy with a good eye who has the skills to succeed against a bunch of raw players. He probably won't continue to get on base at a steady rate if he can't show some power. Pitchers don't walk non power threats all that often because they know they can challenge them with strikes. He is an ok prospect, maybe even a guy sitting in that 20 range, but he isn't near the top 10.
