I understand he's 1st in all the minors in outfield assists with 12 and is mentioned as a top 4 outfielder in all the minors! I think you might be underestimating him!
Perhaps you're right and he could be the next Brett Gardner, which I think is his upside scenario. I'd be happy to be wrong here. However Gardner had better OBP numbers across the board in the minor leagues. Like I said, I see LaMarre as Chris Heisey with significantly less power.
