I know. This is what I've been waiting for - to see how much he can do at this level. Big step up. Moving from an incredibly friendly hitter's league to a neutral or a bit suppressive league. Facing a much better level of pitching. Running against guys who are better at holding him on and catchers who are better at throwing. This, imo, is the most difficult test he faces until he actually jumps to the big leagues. Here is where so many guys stumble on their climb.
